Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
A key feature of this course is its interdisciplinary and coherent approach, which brings together chemistry, physics and mathematics. Chemical physics is an exciting and intellectually challenging area, and on this course you will be introduced to topics that reflect its full scope. These include the fabrication and properties of nanoparticles, laser systems and their applications, microsensors, computational modelling and photonics. Our modules include theoretical, experimental and computational components, and laboratory classes will help you develop your practical expertise. Our lecturers are internationally known for their expertise in chemical physics. Enhance your studies by studying abroad. You will spend your third year abroad before returning to UEA for your final year. On your return, you will be able to undertake an independent research project in theoretical, experimental or computational chemical physics. We currently have exchange agreements with universities in North America, including California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado and Missouri in the United States, and in British Columbia, Western Ontario and Calgary in Canada.
Year 1 gives you a strong basis in chemistry and laboratory-based work, alongside specialist topics in chemical physics and quantum mechanics. Year 2 focuses largely on laboratory work and alongside this, you will study core chemistry topics, mathematics and theoretical chemistry. Year 3 will be spent abroad. In Year 4, you study advanced modules in chemistry and also undertake a final year research project on theoretical, experimental or computational chemical physics, depending on your interests.
With a wonderfully diverse range of courses and superb extra-curricular clubs and societies run by one of the most dynamic student unions in the country, UEA is a great place to both live and learn. Located in the beautiful city of Norwich it becomes no wonder UEA is consistently one of the best universities for student satisfaction.
