Chemistry is the study of matter on an atomic and molecular level.
Below you will find information about the specific degree course offered by Oxford University to study Chemistry, how to prepare, and how Oxbridge Interviews can help you with your application.BOOK COURSE
Cambridge University do not offer a degree in straight Chemistry. The core sciences degree is Natural Sciences.
Oxford University's Chemistry course is three years with the option to extend to four years for a Master's degree.
The application process is highly competitive with only 30% of applications successful. To be offered a place, you generally need to get A*A*A at A Level (or equivalent) and A-level Chemistry and Maths are requirements.
To prepare for your Chemistry application, you must demonstrate your motivation for the subject and specific interests. You can do this by reading beyond your school curriculum. Our interviewers recommend:
- 'Physical Chemistry' by P. W. Atkins
- 'Inorganic Chemistry' by Shriver and Atkins
Practice interviews for Chemistry applications are critical. You wouldn’t sit an exam without doing a mock, so don’t place yourself in an interview without having experienced a practice interview first.
There are no written admissions test as part of the application process for Chemistry at Oxford.
