A Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) degree from Newcastle University can lead to a whole range of careers. If you want to pursue chemistry research in industry or academia, a good chemistry degree (usually an MChem) is essential, often followed by a research (PhD) degree.
Most chemistry graduates choose to pursue careers in scientific research-related roles or in technical occupations.
The main employers are those in the chemical and related industries such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, petrochemicals, toiletries, plastics, and polymers. Other key employment sectors include the food and drink industry; utilities and energy research; health and medical; research organisations and agencies.
A small proportion of chemistry graduates will choose to enter very different career areas. The problem-solving and analytical skills you'll acquire will make you highly employable. They provide a good subset for non-science-related, well-paid graduate jobs.
