Is this programme for you?

How do you track down the genes that can cause cancer? How can you build a molecular-scale motor? How can you make flexible organic solar cells? Chemistry is about a lot more than bubbling test tube in a lab. In our Chemistry programme, you will try to understand and control all the chemical processes that go on around you.

You like the idea of creating new molecules and materials and conducting research on chemical substances. You want to understand how atoms, molecules, and ions determine the world we live in. If you are comfortable with mathematics and physics, then our BSc in Chemistry is the perfect programme for you.
