Our career-focused degrees develop graduates ready for today's chemistry careers.
94% of leavers were in work and/or study 15 months after the end of their course. Of those who reported their main activity to be full-time employment, 90% were in graduate level roles (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2017/18; First Degree responders from Chemistry). We're ranked 4th in England for graduate earning power in the Physical, Material and Forensic Sciences subject area.*
Past students have found work with organisations such as Pfizer, Evotec, Pharmaterials (now Quotient Sciences), Intertek, CEM Analytical Services, Thames Water and the police. Other graduates go into a range of professions, including becoming analytical scientists, organic synthetic chemists, peptide chemists, research chemists and senior analysts.
*Based on the BBC’s analysis of a report published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (‘The relative labour market returns to different degrees’, June 2018). The ranking is based on male graduate data only, as there was not sufficient data for female graduates for all compared degrees.
