About

We are one of the UK's elite chemistry departments, recognised globally for world class research and teaching. We attract outstanding faculty, researchers and students from all parts of the world.

Our students have the chance to work with companies such as GSK, DuPont or AstraZeneca, and can study in Europe, Canada, the USA and elsewhere.

Our research spans a broad range of topics and disciplines, offering students the chance to collaborate with scientists both within and outside the University.

Modern, high-tech facilities provide the ideal learning and research environment, placing Bristol at the forefront of chemistry research.

Bristol ChemLabS, the UK’s only chemistry-based Centre for Excellence in Teaching in Learning, provides students with innovative teaching within a world-class facility.

The School of Chemistry hosts or participates in eight national flagship EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training, including the the Bristol Chemical Synthesis Centre for Doctoral Training and the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials.
