We are OU Alchemy

Who is OU Alchemy for?

Our soci­ety is for any­one who has an interest in chem­istry, is study­ing chem­istry, is con­sid­er­ing study­ing it, has ever stud­ied it or who teaches it. Yes, it’s also for those people who’re obliged to study it but aren’t too fond of it – we’re here to help (and we hope we might con­vert you!)

Although we anti­cip­ate many of our mem­bers will be cur­rent OU stu­dents or staff, alumni are also extremely wel­come, and any­one else can join if they would like to!

What are we try­ing to achieve?

  • To encour­age an interest in chem­istry, both within and bey­ond the curriculum
  • To sup­port OU stu­dents who meet any chem­istry in their stud­ies, whether or not they con­sider them­selves to be chem­istry students
  • To improve under­stand­ing of the role of chem­istry in our world
  • To provide oppor­tun­it­ies for stu­dents to meet (online or in real life) for sub­ject dis­cus­sion, mutual sup­port, or social purposes - to have fun!
