Chemistry external placements

Chemistry students undertaking an external placement as part of their degree programme often secure placements outside the UK.

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.
