Autumn term 2020-21 news

This course will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If students can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, the Department has made plans to still provide them a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online), known as ‘multi-mode’ delivery. The balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide you increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year. For more information about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus, please see our Covid-19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

We will update our course pages with further details once they are finalised.

About the Ancillary Programme

During the first and second year, students must select to study one ancillary subject which is not Chemistry.

All Year 1 and 2 Chemistry students, irrespective of their exact degree programme, must take an ancillary subject for credit. The ancillaries offered generally constitute around 50-60 teaching contact hours spread accross the Autumn and Spring terms and have associated exams, typically in May. Further details are normally issued at the first lecture of each ancillary course.

For those students taking specific degree programmes, there may be requirements and restrictions associated with the choice of ancillary subject. More details can be found in the document Scheme for the Award of Honours 2018 - 2019‌.
