Register for the event here!

As part of the UCL Graduate Open Day, the Department of Chemistry is hosting its third Research Open Day for undergraduates from any university on Wednesday 5th December 2018. Our research groups are opening their labs and inviting you to explore the fascinating research they are undertaking. You can meet current PhDs and PDRAs at our talks and poster session, as well as attend exciting research demonstrations.

PhD talks

Meet our research teams

Get the chance to find out more about the research being undertaken in the department by speaking to current PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. You will also get to hear from PhD students about the application process, as well as find out what studying a research degree is really like. 

This event is open to all students who might be interested in pursuing a postgraduate degree in chemistry or a related field. Indeed, much of the research that goes on in our department blurs the lines between biology, chemistry, and physics, so students from all scientific disciplines are welcome!
