The ambition of the Department of Chemistry is to establish itself as a leading centre for research and teaching. Currently, we offer an undergraduate degree programme in chemistry and an MRes in advanced chemical sciences.
The structure of the undergraduate degree programme is designed to accommodate the background and specific requirements of students and is compatible with the modules offered by University of Liverpool so students may spend their last two years studying at Liverpool. To consolidate the learning of theoretical chemistry, students spend a high percentage of time performing practical experimentations. Our laboratories are equipped with modern facilities
"We aim to provide students with research-led education in modern chemistry, covering organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical and theoretical chemistry, and analytical chemistry."

Royal Society of Chemistry accreditation
The accreditation means that upon graduation, BSc Applied Chemistry students will have partially gained the academic requirements needed to achieve chartered status and be able to demonstrate internationally recognised standards of competency as chemists.
The Department of Chemistry at XJTLU is the first at an independent Sino-foreign university in China to achieve this accreditation for its undergraduate degree programme.
