Open Days and Visiting our School

Our Open Days give you and your family a glimpse of Manchester life and attending one is the best way to find out more about the School of Chemistry, quiz us on the details of our courses and meet our staff. You will also have opportunities to talk to current students and academics and find out what they love about working and studying in Chemistry.
