Join a University ranked #1 in the UK for Chemistry research and in the UK top five for Physics research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning.

This four-year course is ideal for those considering scientific careers that will make direct use of their subject-specific knowledge and skills.

Our degrees incorporate units in chemistry, physics and mathematics. The first year gives you a comprehensive grounding in these subjects, while later years focus on atomic and molecular science and its interdisciplinary applications.

You will focus on areas at the interface between chemistry and physics, with limited treatment of organic chemistry and more physical and non-synthetic inorganic chemistry. Similarly, there is very little nuclear and particle physics after your first year but an emphasis on materials science and nanoscience.

As well as lectures and practical classes, small-group tutorials and workshops help develop your understanding of challenging and exciting concepts. Practical labs in both chemistry and physics help develop experimental techniques, computational modelling and programming skills needed in the final year for conducting a research project with a research team.

This course is accredited by the following organisations

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry for fully meeting the academic criteria for Chartered Chemist (CChem).

The Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of fully meeting the educational requirement for Chartered Physicist.
