Our Chemistry degrees open up diverse career opportunities in the public and private sectors and many graduates continue their studies by training as teachers or conducting academic or industrial research.
Graduates can also seek employment in a wide range of industries and organisations, as a chemistry degree provides you with many additional transferable skills, for example numeracy, data handling, computing and IT, evaluating written material and presenting both written and verbal reports. These skills are highly valued by employers and are required in many areas of managerial and administrative work, in business, commerce, finance, banking or the Civil Service, and many chemist move easily into occupations in these areas.
Lancaster University is dedicated to ensuring you not only gain a highly reputable degree, you also graduate with the relevant life and work based skills. We are unique in that every student is eligible to participate in The Lancaster Award which offers you the opportunity to complete key activities such as work experience, employability/career development, campus community and social development.
