School of Physical Sciences


Chemistry at Kent is distinctive; our modules are designed to equip students with a solid foundation of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and are taught within contextual frameworks of important contemporary issues. These include: medicinal (drug chemistry), computational chemistry, fires, explosions and disasters and forensic chemistry. Our students are therefore able to appreciate the application of chemistry within these areas..

With seven new research active academic staff members, we have injected additional vitality and diversity into the team to ensure our chemistry courses are continually evolving to cover the most topical and industrially relevant advances in the chemical sciences.

DID YOU KNOW: According to the DLHE survey 2015, Chemistry at Kent was ranked 1st out of 56 HEIs in the UK for students who found employment or went on to further study within 6 months of graduating in 2014.
