Student’s (and parent’s) most Frequently Asked Questions

Why study Chemistry?

Chemistry is an essential part of the three core sciences you will study during your GCSEs. Although many students find this subject quite challenging, it is the most important subject for those wishing to pursue a career in STEM fields, both at secondary school and university level. Studying chemistry will give you important analytical thinking skills and an understanding of chemical processes at the molecular level. The concepts you learn in secondary chemistry are the same fundamental concepts that will be used in many industries and careers. 

There are countless applications for chemistry, and no matter what scientific direction you take, your understanding of basic chemistry concepts will be essential. Chemists are involved in research and development in many different fields. You'll find them in research and development facilities looking for the causes of disease, or in pharmaceutical companies making new drugs or isolating the active ingredients from plants used in remedies. 

Chemists also work in foundries to make steel products with desired properties and in oil refineries to reduce impurities in petroleum products. Chemistry, then, is a broad field that offers many opportunities to find a variety of interesting options after high school.

The chemistry curriculum takes you through both organic and inorganic chemistry, with plenty of time spent performing hands-on experiments in the labs themselves. Many of the laboratory procedures studied, such as titration, filtration, endothermic and exothermic reactions, and stoichiometry, are similarly applied to large industrial processes. With a chemistry background, you can gain great insight into many scientific processes used by all sorts of companies in all sorts of industries around the world. A sound understanding of chemistry is indeed a good investment in your future. 

What university degrees is chemistry useful for?

Entering university to pursue a degree related to chemistry requires a secondary school qualification in the subject. If you meet this requirement, then there are a variety of bachelor's degree programmes that you can take depending on your interests. Some of these degree programmes are tailored to specific career directions. This gives students a great head start in their dream career from the very first day of study.

The advantage of a chemistry degree is that it lays the groundwork for several branches of science. For example, you can pursue a bachelor's degree in chemistry and neuroscience, as neuroscience relies heavily on understanding the chemical balances in the nerves. You can take control of your studies by choosing courses that match your interests and doing your own research in this largely unexplored field. 

Chemistry is also an essential component of health and environmental sciences. As a result, many students pursue a bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and Medicinal Chemistry. This degree will give you an in-depth understanding of critical issues related to climate change, our responsibility to the environment, and the impact of climate change on our health. 

Alternatively, if you want a broader degree in chemistry and health sciences, you can choose a bachelor's degree in biology and Medicinal Chemistry. Some students also prefer biochemistry, which is also an excellent degree choice. 

After earning a bachelor's degree, you could follow several career paths. You could pursue a master's in chemical engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry, or quality control, which would give you a good start to your career in these industries.

There's also always the option to go all the way and do an MPhil and a PhD. If you are business-minded, you could also aim for an MBA, as the chemistry degree curriculum will provide you with the necessary mathematical skills that are a prerequisite for the degree.

What careers can studying chemistry lead to?

How does chemistry help with DPharm? 

DPharm is a four-year degree programme after which you can become a certified pharmacist. Finding a career in pharmacy requires a detailed understanding of chemistry. Given the complexity of the global pharmaceutical system, it is more or less essential for any pharmacist or aspiring pharmacist to be familiar with drug development and manufacturing. Moreover, a good understanding of this subject will help you to progress in your career - no matter what aspect you are interested in.

Pharmacy isn’t just related to drug manufacturing. Pharmacists must utilise their understanding of chemistry in developing medical diagnostics systems such as gas chromatography and help create analytical procedures for detecting chemicals related to health concerns for e.g. food contamination or environmental pollution.

Pharmacists are also required to use chemistry concepts in forensic sciences. They help researchers find out drug toxicity and levels such as in criminal investigations or autopsy procedures. A deep understanding of chemistry is often needed to find rare toxins that may have infected a person, as such this knowledge can help prevent and identify the source of the spread of toxins.

How expert online Chemistry tutors can help you?

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your group objectives. Classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable with, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
