Our courses

At Loughborough University you will study the principles and applications of modern chemistry that underpin many important UK industries with an emphasis on hands-on laboratory work. Our Department of Chemistry provides you with a stimulating and supportive learning environment and the opportunity to develop a wide range of transferable skills.

The chemical and pharmaceuticals industry is central to the modern world economy and plays a vital role in the creation of ground-breaking products that make our lives healthier, safer and more sustainable.

Our courses are orientated towards the practice of chemistry in the world outside the University. Master of Chemistry (MChem) undergraduate courses (4 year or 5 year sandwich) prepare students for research work in industry or a PhD research course. Our 3 year (or 4 year sandwich) BSc equips you for employment in chemistry, scientific and other sectors.

Our recently launched Chemistry with Computing course enables you to combine the study of chemistry with computation, providing you with a powerful skill-set for the modern laboratory.

We also offer OpenPlus (in partnership with the Open University) which provides a flexible route to a degree in chemistry for those without the traditional entry requirements.  Chemistry is available with a Foundation Year.
