We are ranked among the top 10 universities nationally for the job prospects of our chemistry graduates. This, alongside the national shortage of suitably qualified chemists in industry, puts our graduates in a strong position. Some use their chemistry and their communication skills to become teachers in universities, schools and colleges. Others use their knowledge and skills to follow research careers in universities, industry, government laboratories and research institutes.
Those with entrepreneurial ambitions work in companies that aim to lead the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and nanotechnology markets. Many find employment in laboratories carrying out testing, development, production and analysis.
The scientific and personal skills you gain also open up a wide range of careers where chemistry is not directly involved, including computing, administration, accountancy, insurance, banking and journalism. Others choose to continue their studies as postgraduates.
