Department of Chemistry


Why study Chemistry at Warwick?

  • Our Department is ranked in the UK top ten by all national league tables and its research activities are highly rated. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 98% of our research was classed ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world leading’. You can draw on our areas of research expertise to build a degree to suit your interests and ambitions. If you complete the third-year extended lab module, you will graduate with a degree accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. This will be an advantage if you intend to pursue a career as a researcher or professional Chemist. If your career aspirations are broader you can opt out of the accredited route in favour of more flexibility in module choices.
  • Undergraduate teaching laboratories are equipped with state-of-the art instrumentation, and major investment has provided outstanding infrastructure for undergraduate study and research. This includes a High-Field NMR and Ion Cyclotron Centre, and a £24m interdisciplinary centre for Materials and Analytical Science.
  • Our strong links with industry and universities worldwide provide opportunities for you to undertake funded summer research projects and seek three-, six- or 12-month placements in industry to build your CV and increase your employability. Third-year research placements are also available throughout Europe, in Singapore or with our partners in Australia (currently in Tasmania or in Melbourne).
