This BSc degree course in pure chemistry opens up the fascinating world of chemistry, providing you with plenty of hands-on practical experience and flexible module choice - taught in our outstanding state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
Chemistry powers many aspects of our lives, from the clean water we drink to the air we breathe. The materials we use in our everyday lives, much of the food we eat, and the energy that runs our homes, schools and workplaces we owe to the work of chemists. Chemistry is a vibrant, fascinating subject that enhances our understanding of the natural and physical world and often provides the key to solving global challenges. This is why chemistry students can go on to make a real difference in the world, tackling issues like climate change, hunger and disease.
At Loughborough, our BSc (Hons) degree in Chemistry provides a comprehensive study of the subject with the opportunity to tailor the course in your final year through a range of optional modules.  Throughout your undergraduate studies you will gain practical hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art STEMLab facilities - gaining highly developed lab skills in the process.
As your knowledge of chemistry grows, you will also develop analytical and problem-solving skills that have value in a wide variety of employment contexts.  Our placement scheme gives you the opportunity to gain highly sought-after workplace experience and apply what you have learnt in a real job with real responsibilities, often working with major companies and organisations (for example, GlaxoSmithKline, RB, Lubrizol, and Pirelli).  You could also broaden your horizons with a year studying abroad.
Our Department of Chemistry prides itself on offering our students high levels of pastoral support, a peer-mentoring scheme, and the compelling insights of our renowned academic staff, many of whom are active in research with far-reaching impact.
In Years 1 and 2 the main areas of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry form the backbone of the BSc Chemistry degree, with additional modules in spectroscopy, analytical chemistry, and mathematics. Laboratory classes, workshops and seminars support these lectures. After Year 2, the development of core chemistry continues along with optional topics which include drug synthesis and action, advanced analytical research methodologies, energy and equilibria, and inorganic chemistry.
In the final year of your Chemistry degree you will study research techniques and methods that are complemented with further advanced modules in chemistry. Two investigative projects, often working in teams, are undertaken - building your research skills and teamworking abilities.
