The HND in Chemistry at University of Wolverhampton aims to develop your skills and knowledge in the main areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry) in an integrated manner with area of specialism such as pharmaceutical chemistry, forensic chemistry, biochemistry, polymer chemistry, environmental chemistry and aspects of industrial chemistry.


The HND in Chemistry at University of Wolverhampton aims to Produce a diplomate who is “fit for purpose”, and who is ready for employment in the chemistry or related industry, at a technical level, or who can progress to further third year study at either BSc or MChem level.

At the end of this course you, the student, will be able to:

  • demonstrate practical skills, work safely in the laboratory and be fully conversant with standard chemical techniques, instrumentation and use of appropriate computer software.
  • survey and critically review scientific information, communicate effectively both orally and in writing, apply numerical skills to scientific data, and work in teams and independently.
  • demonstrate a systematic understanding of physical chemistry and physicochemical principles and apply that knowledge to theoretical and practical problem solving.
  • demonstrate and apply knowledge of a range of inorganic and organic chemical materials (including structure, bonding, properties, synthesis, isolation, purification and characterisation techniques).
  • demonstrate and apply knowledge of a range of analytical techniques, evaluate and interpret analytical data (including appropriate statistical analysis).
  • be aware of a range of issues within chemistry that overlap with other related disciplines.



Consider the importance of medicines and pharmaceutical technology, industrial chemistry, hospital-based chemistry, forensic-based chemistry, environmental-based chemistry, the food and drinks industry and many other aspects of chemistry in the modern world. The UK’s “chemical industry” is one of the leading industrial contributors to the national economy. 

There are many opportunities to apply chemical knowledge, principles and skills to a successful career in chemistry or chemistry-related discipline. “Chemistry will underpin economic growth, say industry leaders”, it was recently reported in the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) publication, Chemistry World, on the “Strategy for delivering chemistry-fuelled growth of the UK economy”.


You will have studied what can perhaps be considered to be “the central science”. You will have developed knowledge of the main areas of chemistry, good practical skills, literacy & numeracy skills, use of IT skills and you should be capable of logical, scientific, critical thinking and problem solving. These skills will make you well equipped for the workplace, be it in a chemistry environment or the wider world of work in general, or for further study on our BSc or MChem programmes.

Further training

The HND chemistry diplomate will be fully capable of further study and training at BSc or MChem level.
