Overview

The aims of the BSc Chemistry programme are to enhance your sense of enthusiasm for chemistry and to involve you in an intellectually stimulating experience of learning in a supportive environment. The university will provide you with a sound background in all aspects of chemistry as part of a rounded scientific education, as well as comprehensive training in practical chemistry and an appreciation of the importance of the discipline in different contexts. The university will provide a strong foundation for a successful career as a professional chemist and provide opportunities for you to develop a range of transferable skills for both chemical and non-chemical careers.

Career opportunities

Employability is about more than just getting a job. The university believes in helping their students to gain the necessary experience for a future career, along with the skills to identify opportunities and make the most of them.

It is reassuring to know that Chemistry degrees are third only behind Medicine and Dentistry as the degree which offers the highest financial return over the term of the graduate’s career, but the rewards of a BSc Chemistry degree lie at a deeper personal level and not just in terms of financial return.

During your years here you will have the opportunity to broaden your options by meeting employers, getting involved in volunteering activities, work placements and much more.

A significant proportion of the university’s graduates decide to go into research by taking a PhD qualification, most of them staying in Southampton. But careers in industry and commerce are available even in the toughest economic times.

There are also research and teaching opportunities and the options to branch out into other fields such as medicine, pharmaceuticals, even finance, the law and science journalism. This is because chemistry gives you the confidence to take on so many varied challenges in life.

With a Chemistry degree from the University of Southampton your career path will be limited only by the level of your commitment and determination.
