School of Chemistry


At Leicester, our teaching is powered by our world-leading research and is amongst the finest in the UK.

  • 100% of students employed/further education within 6 months of graduation (The UniGuide 2021)
  • 18th for UK Chemistry Departments (Guardian 2022)
  • 93% overall Student Satisfaction (National Student Survey 2021)

We offer a range of courses that reflect the modern needs for chemistry in industry and society. You will learn to use the very latest research equipment and instruments for chemical analysis, and graduate with the breadth and depth of knowledge to be a professional chemist. Alternatively, you can take advantage of the transferable skill set that the Leicester degrees equip you with to seek employment in a variety of related professional disciplines.

There are opportunities to incorporate a Year in Industry or Year Abroad into most of our degree courses.
