Hi @Hereandabout100
I am not a chemistry student, but I will ask the other reps if they can give you more specific details.

Southampton is rated 16th on complete university chemistry leaque table. It has the same overall satisfaction as manchester (92%), just below bristol which has a score of 93%. So in terms of the course as a whole, they are all quite prestigious in that respect.

In regards to prospects and salaries after your degree, we have a really good Careers and employablity team here at Southampton who can help with quite a broad range of aspects. They have careers advisors available for you to talk to either online or in person who can help with application advice, career planning and exploring options.

All of the chemistry courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, and once you graduate you will be eligible for full membership status which is very useful in terms of networking and employability.

Have you visited southampton at one of our Open days? If not I'd really reccomend visiting any of the unis you are interested in as it is a really good way to get a feel for the city and campus. We have some coming up at the beginning of july, and a couple more throughout the summer.

I've really enjoyed studying at Southampton, and it is also a pretty nice city to live in. There is quite a nice split between busier city life and lovely green spaces too!

Please feel free to let me know if you have any more questions!

I’m gonna visit their open day. In terms of who’s leading the race atm soton is because it’s just got a charm and aura about it that tickles my fancy. I’m just wondering what would make me the most employable
