Department of Chemistry University of Oxford

Science is extremely important in everyday life. However, to most people, it is seen as something that is difficult to understand and requires a large amount of time and effort to grasp even the basic principles. What we are trying to do here at The Oxford University Chemistry Department, is to make science more exciting, understandable and relevant to the general public in an attempt to encourage more people to take an interest.

If more students chose to study chemistry, not only does the economy benefit, the world at large should too with increased advancement in our understanding of how things work.

New Teaching Labs and Reduced Outreach 2018


Oxford University is in the process of building new teaching laboratories for our undergraduate students. While these labs are much anticipated it does unfortunately mean we will have to reduce the amount of outreach we can offer to give the staff the opportunity to move all the equipment to the new labs. The move and subsequent reduction of outreach will take place between May and October 2018.
