York Chemistry retains Top 5 position

Posted on 27 April 2017

Chemistry at York has once again been recognised in the 2018 Complete University Guide, with the Department retaining its 4th position.

York Chemistry gained high scores across the board

This independent and trusted league table rates departments for Research Quality, Student Satisfaction, Graduate Prospects and Entry Standards. York Chemistry gained high scores across the board, most notably in Student Satisfaction and Graduate Prospects.

Since the publishing of league tables in The Complete University Guide, York Chemistry has never left the top 10.

Dr Victor Chechik, Chair of Board of Studies said: "We are extremely proud to once again achieve 4th place in Complete University Guide. This is an outstanding recognition of the effort of every member of staff in the Department. With our commitment to high quality teaching and research, we work very hard to deliver excellent student experience."

With the recent re-accreditation of our undergraduate programmes by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the introduction of two new pathways in the next academic year, the Department is well-placed to build on this success, and aims to continue improving both research and teaching in the coming years.
