Dr. Bridgette Duncombe
Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS)

Welcome to the teaching pages of the Chemistry Department, Imperial College, London. Whether you are a current student or prospective student you will find a great deal of useful information within these pages about our courses and how the chemistry degrees at Imperial work.

My name is Dr. Bridgette Duncombe (but everyone calls me Bridge) and I am the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS). This is a job that encompasses both the operational and also the strategic management of the Department’s undergraduate programmes, so it is a big job that involves me working with a lot of people from academics, technicians, alumni, employers and current students to make sure our courses are the best preparation for your future employment.

As of November 2016, Bridge has been away from College - please therefore use the email address for all queries. This email is monitored daily by all the staff in the student services centre. Queries will be responded to as soon as possible. Prof. Donald Craig is acting DUGS, covering in the absence of the DUGS.

The website has been designed by students for students and we hope that you find the pages useful. However, if you have a query about the content or an idea about information you would wish to see on the pages please simply let us know via the email address and we will try our best to answer any question you may have.
