Durham Chemistry is a thriving centre for teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and for world-leading research in the chemical sciences. Our committed and enthusiastic staff make the Department a wonderful environment in which to work and study.
We have modern modular undergraduate courses and offer both three year BSc and four year M.Chem courses. You can also study chemistry in conjunction with other subjects via the Natural Science programme. Our four year courses include cutting-edge research projects based in Durham research groups, in industry or hosted by our international partners.
The Department has a long tradition of interdisciplinary research which covers a wide scientific spectrum from the development of bioactive probes through to the theory and computational study of molecular interactions. More details can be found via the web pages of our six research groupings. We work closely with many other Departments within the University, institutes such as the Biophysical Sciences Institute and Durham Energy Institute as well as research centres in areas such as Sustainable Chemistry, X-ray methods and Soft Matter. We also have strong links with many Universities, Research Centres and Companies in the UK and overseas.
