Content

Everything around us involves chemistry, from the food that we eat to the air that we breathe. Chemistry is a vibrant and exciting central science that interfaces with biology, physics, mathematics, medicine and geology, and St Andrews offers appropriate modules highlighting the importance of these interfaces.

At St Andrews, students are able to build their fundamental training in chemistry into specialised areas including medicinal chemistry, materials, molecular biology, nanotechnology, catalysis and surface science. Chemists are highly valued as researchers, developers and managers in manufacturing industries including fuels and pharmaceuticals.
