We are renowned as one of the UK's top chemistry departments. Our teaching in lectures, tutorials, seminars and practical lab classes is supported by an innovative online Dynamic Laboratory Manual which allows you to practise experiments and prepare for lab work using interactive virtual instruments and video clips of techniques. Lectures provide an introduction to a subject while small-group teaching sessions allow you develop your understanding of the material alongside important lab-based learning. You can transfer at the end of your first year between each of our three-year BSc and four-year MSci courses. Our degrees have a common first year in which you will study basic chemistry together with optional units offered by other departments. You will also take a mathematics unit to help underpin your study of chemistry. Final-year research project work provides training in experiment design, interpretation of new experimental results and presentation methods.
