School of Chemistry

UEA's School of Chemistry was established over 50 years ago and is passionate about providing a modern and innovative learning experience.

We combine modern tools and technologies with the latest thinking and research to create a programme that is at the forefront of chemistry education.

While chemistry is the foundation of our work, we are a cross-disciplinary school that explores how it intersects with other areas, from biology to physics and analytical science. Students benefit from flexible courses they can tailor to their interests, and gain skills and experiences that prepare them for future careers. These can include overseas study in locations such as North America, or placements in industry.

Our tight-knit community gives students the opportunity to work closely with leading researchers and features notable expertise in organic synthesis, catalysis, biological chemistry and chemical physics.

We are also part of the Norwich Research Park, a hub of innovative and trail-blazing companies and organisations. Our new state-of-the-art teaching labs, world class research and dedicated faculty combine to provide an ideal study environment.
