Graduates are well suited to take up roles in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, either in research and development or sales and marketing. You will gain valuable work experience in a real-life research environment. Alternatively, a Masters degree is a precursor to a Ph.D degree.
Our courses teach students the valuable skills they need to also move into other areas outside chemistry. Careers in IT, management or finance are possiblities after completing your degree.
The wealth of opportunities for students to get involved in sporting and social activities also leads to graduates with good job prospects. Becoming a committee member at a society or getting involved with one of the University's sports clubs can make you stand out from the crowd.
The University provides an excellent careers service that can help you determine what's right for you or help you with advice about improving your skills even further.
"I particularly appreciated the learning experience from the Research Methods Course where I was chosen as team leader on several occasions and had to lead the team in experimental design, data organising and giving the report presentations. These experiences were very important for my future career development."
