At Bradford we have designed our courses with the specific aim of getting our graduates into employment or further study. We believe that the best advert for this approach is our students themselves, and we are immensely proud that The Daily Telegraph can report that Bradford Chemistry graduates are number 1 for employability prospects across all chemistry graduates in the UK in 2014. Our unique â??2 + 1â?? course structure allows us to focus on the strengths that make our students so employable for particular sectors, whilst maintaining the notion that a university education should be the chance for students to broaden their horizons. As such, in their first two years we encourage our students to make the most from their educational experience by taking elective modules from across the university.
