Sheffield is an exciting place to study chemistry. Two of our graduates and two former professors are Nobel prizewinners. Staff here are working on potentially world-changing projects, including catalytic clothing that purifies air, and sustainable energy and food production.
When it comes to teaching, you can expect quality, consistency and lots of practical experience. In the first year there are six hours of lab work every week. After the second year, you can switch to the more advanced MChem course if you achieve the required standard.
Graduates work all over the world in the pharmaceutical industry, fine chemicals, materials and bioscience for companies such as Unilever and GlaxoSmithKline. But their problem-solving abilities and their high level of numeracy are valued outside the sector, in financial services, IT, management and teaching.

"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.
