The chemical industry is the UK’s second largest export contributor and has a significant presence in North Wales and the North West of England.


A key feature of this course is problem-based laboratory sessions designed to equip you for a career in the Chemical Sciences. A wide-ranging study of the relevant theory encompassing inorganic, organic and physical chemistry disciplines is set in the context of current and emerging technologies within the industry and informed by research activity. The core theme of analytical chemistry cuts across both classroom-based sessions and practical sessions delivered in our well-equipped instrument laboratories.


Project work in years 2 and 3 nurtures independent learning, critical thinking and the acquisition of project management skills demanded in the workplace.


Whilst our BSc (Hons) Chemistry degree is ideal for those who wish to pursue a career in the Chemical Industry, success in the course can also lead to opportunities for post-graduate study within the School’s Research Centre or educational jobs in the public sector.
