This subject provides a series of specialised modules in the areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.
Students choose three modules from the following selection of topics. Each module consists of 12 lectures.
Students should develop an advanced perspective on theory and applications across the disciplines of Chemistry. They should obtain problem-solving skills and training in chemistry sufficient to allow them to pursue careers in applied chemistry and chemicals-based research. In the latter case, students should obtain the chemical knowledge needed to be able to complete successfully the honours/masters coursework.
Each of the three modules selected by the student will contribute one third of the marks to the final grade. The assessment for each module will take one of the following two forms:
