Though my course is quite specific we've still explored a range of things in chemistry throughout my degree. The course offers a challenge but also a real chance to learn about chemistry and apply this also as it is very lab-heavy. I think that's a key part that I enjoyed - learning in terms of theories but also being given a chance to apply this practically in the lab from year 1. I've had a range of practical experience and teaching, this has given me an insight into the places I can hopefully make a difference in relating to chemistry. The masters year however has been an additional bonus for developing research and laboratory skills and learning more innovative and contemporary ways to do Chemistry. Though it can be challenging, I think the benefits from studying a degree in Chemistry in terms of career prospects but also development whilst on the course make it worth it. Being taught by a range of chemistry lecturers who are also researchers has been great. Thanks Loughborough! read more

It depends on the modules you take but some lecturers are really good and if they aren't or you don't understand something, they are very nice and will explain it to you one to one, you just have to email them your questions. The job prospects are really good at the uni. read more

I have experiments frequently to develop my knowledge, skills and understanding. Lectures cover a wide range of topics from the pure and applied mathematical side to the quantum element to the molecular and elemental side. Lecturers are always on hand to answer questions whether it’s during classes or by email, and your personal tutor is there to help too. Job prospects are promising both due to the field itself as well as the amazing university the degree and reputation comes from. read more

If you love chemistry, then Loughborough is a great place to study. If you don't have a genuine passion for it, you will find that you will struggle and not enjoy yourself. Great organic + inorganic lecturers. Personally I didn't have a great experience with analytical chemistry or physical chemistry but I know others that have. read more

Most of the lecturers are really friendly and willing to help you whenever you have a problem. We have the best social side to our course compared to most other courses as we all get on so well and everyone's so different to what you may expect. Labs are amazing, we are trusted to do so many different things and make some amazing products that you could only dream of before read more

So far the course has been engaging and interesting. Contact hours are quite high so you feel you're getting the most out of your tuition fees. You also get plenty of lab equipment provided to you which is included in your tuition fee so it's certainly worth it. Lectures and timetabling can be a little unorganised but I think this was just due to unfortunate circumstances at the time. read more
