Practical focus has always been a feature of Chemistry at Imperial, where students gain mastery of their discipline through intensive laboratory experience, bolstered through research and industrial placements. The move to the White City Campus gives us the opportunity to bring more postgraduates and final-year undergraduates into working laboratories, and to nurture the academic and industrial leaders of tomorrow.

They will apply their learning to a variety of complex problems drawn from society and industry. By working alongside leading figures from industry and established entrepreneurs students will be armed with an in-depth understanding of product development pipelines across a variety of sectors, acquired through first-hand experience of translational research and early stage commercialisation.
