About our programmes
By choosing Chemistry as a postgraduate at Hull you will be joining a vibrant and forward-thinking research community. You can study at a variety of levels, right up to PhD. You will join established research groups and find that we combine research expertise and cutting-edge facilities to deliver a unique experience. We pride ourselves on supporting our postgraduate students to make sure that you achieve your full potential. One of the University’s distinctive features is its strong research culture of collaboration and interdisciplinary working. The department and its researchers work together with, among others, biologists, clinicians, engineers (including chemical engineers), environmental scientists and, through the Hull York Medical School, with medics, on a variety of projects and initiatives.
We have some of the best-developed research links and industrial collaborations of any chemistry department in the UK – including projects with local, regional, national and global chemical companies such as: AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson-Matthey, Pfizer, Reckitt-Benckiser, Schlumberger and Unilever. The department’s research is commercially exploited in terms of patents, licensing and spin-out companies such as Chemtrix, Kingston Chemicals, Polar OLED and Sporomex. The department houses the Institute for Chemistry in Industry – a research consultancy unit for local, national and global chemical industries.
