We are one of the largest Schools of Chemistry in the UK, with around 680 undergraduate and more than 250 postgraduate research students.
The School has comprehensive academic coverage across the chemical sciences and in all the core sub-disciplines of chemistry, with over 120 postdoctoral researchers.
Chemistry at Manchester has a distinguished history of achievement. This tradition of excellence is being continued by our current research programme and by our excellent teaching.
In modern times we can point to Chemistry Nobel Prize winners such as John Polanyi (1986), and Michael Smith (1993) both of whom studied for their BSc and PhD here. Add to this the many Royal Society of Chemistry medallists at present on the staff and it forms a continuing tradition of which we are justifiably proud.
