Course Summary:
**Chemistry at Huddersfield has deep roots. Our teaching and research dates back to the 1840s, when we were a centre for colour chemistry, supporting the textile and dyeing industries in the area, so studying with us means you can get the benefit of all that tradition while setting your sights firmly on the future.** On top of getting a grounding in the core areas of organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry, you’ll get the chance to explore more specialist options during your studies, so you could find yourself delving into medicinal chemistry or getting to grips with forensic science. All helping you to tailor your degree to the kind of job you’d like to do after graduation. All along the way, the course is designed to help you gain knowledge of the fundamentals while developing your logical reasoning and imaginative problem-solving skills. You’ll be able to put all that into practice when you get one year’s research experience in an academic setting in Year 3. So if you’re fascinated by the idea of getting stuck into research for real, and gaining an edge that could help you kick start your career in a broad range of fields, this could be the ideal choice for you. Choosing to study with us means you’ll be taught by academics in specialist areas of chemistry all educated to doctoral level in their subjects and involved in forward-thinking research on a course accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Course scholarships available – up to £3000.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!

    I think my experience overall has been positive, but it could have been improved by better student housing and more support during my placement year.

    The University of Huddersfield may not be a RussellGroup uni, it may not be the most well known, and it may be considered 'lesser' by some, but once you study there you learn that the uni has great industry links, offers wonderful support, and gives you more than just a degree. I would highly recommend it!
