The teaching of chemistry at Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history: 2013 marked the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the ‘Chair of Physick and Chymistry’.
Today we continue that proud tradition as a leader in the field. In collaboration with the University of St Andrews, we have formed EaStCHEM, one of the largest and most successfully funded chemistry research schools in the UK. EaStCHEM was ranked second in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 power table: a combination of excellence and volume. Overall, 95% of our research was classed world-leading or internationally excellent.
Our membership of ScotCHEM takes this collaborative spirit even further, providing links with all the major schools of chemistry in Scottish universities.
We can offer you a large, internationally recognised research community, and the benefits of the latest facilities, well-published and awarded academic staff, a lively graduate school environment and a broad range of study opportunities.
