With a total student "Full Time Equivalent" number in excess of 540, Chemistry is one of the largest Departments in the University. The Department offers a four-year Honours B.Sc. Chemistry course. The number of students in the final year is 40-50. In addition to the B.Sc. (Chemistry) programme, an interdisciplinary course leading to an Honours B.Sc. degree in the Chemistry of Pharmaceutical Compounds is offered

The Department has considerable First Year teaching commitments, not just to Science Faculty students, but also to Food Science & Technology, Engineering (Civil, Electrical & Food Processing), and Medical students. It is also involved in providing Second and Third Year elective courses to Science students majoring in subjects other than Chemistry.

Suitably qualified graduates may proceed to post-graduate programmes leading to higher qualifications. These programmes entail either (a) research in any area of Chemistry leading to M.Sc. or Ph.D. degrees or (b) lectures and a research project leading to M.Sc. degrees or Higher Diplomas. Option (b) is currently ('00-'01) available in Analytical Chemistry and Environmental Analytical Chemistry. The Chemistry Postgraduate school currently has over 100 students. Of these, 65 are studying for Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees by research. The remaining postgraduates are taking M.Sc. degrees and Higher Diplomas by a combination of coursework and research in the following topics: Analytical, Environmental Analytical, Food Analytical, Materials Chemistry and Materials Science. About half of the funding for postgraduates is obtained from sources outside of University College.
