Mission Statement

Chemistry has been taught at St Andrews since 1811. The School continues its mission to attract the most talented students and staff and to pursue excellence in teaching and research in all areas of the chemical sciences to the highest standards of scholarship and integrity.

The School aims to foster a workplace free of discrimination whereby all of our students and staff can work creatively in a safe, professional environment and achieve personal growth based on their ability.

The School engages locally and internationally with research sponsors, industry, scientific societies and other educational communities in order to advance chemical knowledge, innovate in the service of society and educate the next generation of chemical scientists.
