Pure & Applied ChemistryAlumni

You can find our graduates and alumni across the world, pursuing rewarding careers and advancing chemistry in every way. They're also to be found throughout international research, industry and education.

We love hearing from our chemistry alumni and keeping up to date with what they're up to. We also love keeping them up to date with what we're doing in the department and getting them involved where they can, so if you're one of our graduates, keep in touch!

Share your experience

As a student, it's always encouraging to hear from people who've been through it all before. That's why we love having our graduates and alumni come along to have a chat with our current students. It gives you the chance to share your experience and also gives our current students the opportunity to hear from our brilliant graduates.

If you'd like to come along and present to some of our current students, just let us know.

Come and see us

Take a tour of the department

Next time you're in Glasgow, pop in and we'll show you around the department.

We've got newly refurbished laboratories and lecture theatres. It's looking a little different these days with the Thomas Graham building's £7 million glass extension!

Chemistry Seminars

We also have a number of upcoming seminars you can come along to.

They're open to alumni as well as staff and students.

Help support our students

Industrial Placements

As part of the Industrial Placement on our MChem courses, our students spend up to one year in paid and structured industrial training in the chemical industry.

Please let us know if your company or organisation could offer this opportunity to one of our current students.

Find out more about our industrial placement scheme.


We offer a variety of scholarships for our undergraduate and postgraduate students, some of which are funded by our wonderful alumni.

There are also opportunities to sponsor teaching or research equipment.

Giving regularly, even just a small amount, will make a huge difference to our students. If you'd like to make a donation, get in touch with our alumni team.
