Chemistry is a fast-moving area of science, and research in the field is helping us break new ground in numerous areas – enabling the next generation of batteries and fuel cells providing sustainable energy, for example, and the polymer-based smart materials that can mimic biological function, as well as the discovery of novel potential drugs and agrochemicals from plants. You will have the opportunity to participate in genuine research activities and, as a result, develop a proactive and free-thinking mentality. This approach resulted in one of our students winning the prestigious national Science, Engineering and Technology UK 'Best Chemistry Student of the Year' Award. As a student on our Chemistry degree programme, you will work in a stimulating, exciting and fast-moving discipline, learning the fundamentals of and advances in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and you will also use cutting-edge technology.
