Your Global Chemistry Network

Our Chemistry alumni form a global network spanning a diverse range of professions including research, public engagement and industry. All are united by the shared experience of studying at the School of Chemistry, with a strong sense of community amongst our alumni even after they leave the Joseph Black Building.

Wherever you are in the world, there are many ways for you to meet fellow alumni, whether you’d like to expand your network or rekindle old friendships.


We are looking forward to welcoming alumni back to the School of Chemistry for in-person events when it is safe to gather together again. Check back for details on upcoming events, including alumni gatherings, lectures and networking opportunities.  


Thinking about arranging a reunion for your year group? The Alumni Office can help out with advice and contact networks to help your reunion come together.

It is often possible to arrange to have a talk from a member of academic staff on an area of current research. If you would like to arrange this or visit the Joseph Black Building as part of your reunion, please contact us. We would love to see you back!
