If anyone is interested in a degree in chemistry then I suggest taking a look at the chemistry degrees at The University of Southampton. A student at Southampton University will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and technology from the outset of your studies and will benefit from a variety of teaching delivery and assessment styles, which are designed to enhance knowledge and skills.
