Where can chemistry take me?

An excellent base for a university degree in healthcare such as medicine, pharmacy and den9stry as well as the biological sciences,

physics, mathema9cs, pharmacology and analy9cal chemistry. Chemistry is also taken by many law applicants as it shows you can

cope with difficult concepts. Chemistry can also complement a number of arts subjects. A range of career opportuni9es including

chemical, manufacturing and pharmaceu9cal industries and in areas such as forensics, environmental protec9on and healthcare.

The problem solving skills are useful for many other areas such as forensics, environmental protec9on and food science.
