Chemistry external placements

Chemistry students enrolled on the MChem programme are able undertake an external placement in year four of the five year programme.

The School assists students in obtaining (8 to 12 month) placements in leading research laboratories in the UK, Europe and North America. Typically, students join a research and development group within a company and receive a salary for the duration of the placement. Integrating an industry or research laboratory placement into a degree is an excellent opportunity to gain relevant work experience.

Please contact the placement co-ordinator in the School for further information.
