Visit Highlights


Royal Society of Chemistry

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is a learned society (professional association) in the United Kingdom with the goal of "advancing the chemical sciences". It was formed in 1980 from the amalgamation of the Chemical Society, the Royal Institute of Chemistry, the Faraday Society, and the Society for Analytical Chemistry with a new Royal Charter and the dual role of learned society and professional body. At its inception, the Society had a combined membership of 34,000 in the UK and a further 8,000 abroad.

Scientist in the Lab

Chemistry Laboratory, University of Cambridge

The Department of Chemistry has 58 academic leads who conduct research into a wide spectrum of science and are categorised into five major research areas known as Research Interest Groups(RIGs). Students will have a valuable opportunity to visit one of the laboratories and learn about the latest innovative projects.

Department of Chemistry,

University of Cambridge

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge is the chemistry department of the University of Cambridge. It was formed from a merger in the early 1980s of two separate departments that had moved into the Lensfield Road building decades earlier: the Department of Physical Chemistry and the Department of Chemistry respectively. Research interests in the department cover a broad of chemistry ranging from molecular biology to geophysics.
