Subject

Analytical chemistry

The course has been designed to develop the skills that are in-demand with employers - you will learn how to solve real forensic investigation problems using some of the latest equipment in our 21st century analytical science and toxicology lab. Studying in our cutting-edge laboratories and using our state-of-the-art equipment, you will be given expert training in pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry in a supportive environment. Blending forensic science, analytical chemistry and toxicology, your studies are designed to give you the practical skills to work in analytical chemistry, materials chemistry and forensics. We also offer a foundation year, ideal for students whose qualifications dont allow direct access to a degree course, while the MChem programme gives a deeper understanding of the discipline. The option of spending a year in industry imparts skills, experience and knowledge to give you a valuable head start in your career. See our website for more information.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Chemistry graduates are in demand from a wide range of industries, from the food, oil, chemicals and pharmaceuticals to consultancy, technical analysis and teaching. They're also prized by business and finance employers for their research and data handling skills — anywhere there is research and data to be explained, you can find chemistry grads. If you want a career in research, you need a doctorate, so start planning now if you fancy one of these exciting and challenging jobs - but good students can usually get grants to take a doctorate, so don't worry about the financing if you think you have what it takes. The recession wasn’t too kind to chemists, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry (one of the key employers for chemists), but things are getting back to normal for this flexible group and it's one of the few degrees that is bucking the current trend and increasing graduate numbers.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
