We aim to change the world for the better through the excellence of our research, the strength of our teaching and our entrepreneurial outlook.
“The combination of the range of content, from both core and optional material, paired with the time you get in a lab environment as an undergraduate really gives you a well-rounded knowledge of the subject.”Amy Johnston - MChem Chemistry with six-month placement
Chemistry at Southampton is fully committed to the Athena SWAN Charter that recognises a commitment to addressing gender inequalities. Our involvement in the Athena SWAN project is to improve career progression for female academics in science, engineering and technology disciplines in higher education and research in Southampton Chemistry.
A number of our degree programmes achieved 100% in selected areas. This is a reflection of the hard work and commitment from our teaching staff and we are pleased that the undergraduate student community value the excellent teaching experience and facilities we offer them here at Southampton.
At the University of Southampton, we have sealed our position as one of the UK’s top research universities, ranking 11th for the volume of our high quality research in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
