Chemistry has so many diverse applications it is a springboard for all sorts of careers. Students from my research group have gone on to work in the pharmaceutical industry, fine chemicals, computational modelling, academia, publishing, the research councils, finance, patent law, consultancy, science festivals and even museums and galleries. Having good maths skills definitely helps in understanding many of the basic principles of chemistry. But beyond that you can fine-tune your chemical knowledge to suit your other interests. And if you do decide that chemistry isn’t for you, you will have acquired lots of very useful transferable skills that can be applied in a whole range of other careers.
