It is exciting to teach such important theoretical concepts, whilst also developing mathematical technique and logical problem-solving skills.
Chemistry is also a hands-on subject and we proudly chart the practical skills development of our students in our well-resourced labs, as well as taking advantage of links with Newcastle University and local industry, to give our students every opportunity to excel.
On concluding their studies, many of our students go on to join the NHS as doctors, dentists, lab scientists, nurses and midwives. They often also contribute to developing new energy technologies with the petrochemical industry, to developing new drugs with the pharmaceutical industry and to joining the education sector. Chemistry matters a great deal, to us, to our students and society.
