You will develop the practical skills and theoretical knowledge required for the needs of modern industry, preparing you for a rewarding career.
Our undergraduate and postgraduate chemistry degrees allow students to invent, innovate and develop products to help solve current global challenges. At Swansea, our research includes energy, health, new and advanced molecules and materials, and water and the environment.
Paige Mitchell, BSc Chemistry: I love being a member of the Chemistry Society as it helps me to build my CV at the same time as socialising with my friends. We help with outreach activities, such as assisting A-level students who come into our department and carry out experiments, which they would otherwise be unable to do using their school facilities. ChemSoc members are demonstrators for these events and get to support the students in their understanding of the practical as well as the theory behind what they are doing. Some of these experiments include, pH titrations using the data loggers and drop counters and organic synthesis of aspirin.
