You'll be taught by academic staff from the School of Chemistry and the School of Physics and Astronomy. They will feed your curiosity and develop your approach to independent learning. You may even recognise some of our staff from the popular Periodic Videos and Sixty Symbols YouTube channels.
This course focuses on the overlap between the established disciplines of chemistry and physics. Optional modules on topics such as green chemistry, nanoscale and lasers in chemistry allow you to tailor your degree to a specialist field.
Our students have gone into work in a variety of industries including chemistry, physics and pharmaceutics.
