5 great postgraduate programs in chemistry

It may seem like it’s only about beakers and burners but chemistry goes way beyond the formulas of chemicals and combustion experiments. 

From the ingredients of your favourite drink, to the fuels of a spacecraft to how your body breaks down the last slice of pizza, chemistry is everywhere. 

It is the science of how materials interact with each other and with their environment. A postgraduate degree in chemistry would be a stepping stone to not only solving complex problems but also starting with careers in fields such as pharmacy, biochemistry, environmental and applied chemistry etc.

Post completion of the degree, chemistry postgraduates usually land roles such as research scientists, chemical engineers, toxicologists, chemical information specialists or even more intriguing careers like chemical oceanographers, forensic scientists, geochemists and more.
