Chemistry is the central science, with links to biology, physics, mathematics, and engineering. Chemists design and synthesise medicines, investigate climate change and energy, create our everyday products, and develop new materials. With a chemistry degree you’ll be able to work in a diverse range of industries. 

Our Natural Sciences degrees allow you to design your degree to suit your career aspirations and interests and maintain a breadth of scientific subjects. You'll study multiple sciences and explore the links between them, using an interdisciplinary approach.
