After St Hilda's

Typically about 40 per cent of Chemistry graduates remain in the university sector in the first instance, the great majority for further training in research on doctoral programmes. Many of these go on to pursue careers in research and development (in both Chemistry and allied sciences), others in a variety of positions in management, administration and marketing. Of those taking up employment right away, a high proportion enter the financial services sector as trainee accountants or analysts of various kinds, mostly with the major firms or City institutions. Others have gone into the computer applications (IT) industry, teaching or consultancy.
