About

We are one of the largest schools of Chemistry in the UK, with a distinguished history that helps to inform our current research and excellent teaching.

Modern chemistry started here, in Manchester, with John Dalton's atomic theory. Since then we've produced seven chemistry Nobel Prize winners and a number of Royal Society of Chemistry medallists - some of whom still teach here.

Teaching excellence is ensured through our teaching and scholarship group, a close-working set of academics developing new methods, courses and assessments.

The School is home to around 680 undergraduate students, 250 postgraduate research students and 120 postdoctoral researchers, all working to continue our proud tradition.
