Autumn term 2020-21

Courses will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). This ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.

To ensure each programme of study can be delivered safely, we'll be making some changes to our courses for 2020-21. Read about the changes to our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, and to MRes and PhD courses.

Find out more about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus on our COVID-19 pages for current students and offer holders.

Placements and Internships

Placements and internships are an excellent opportunity to:

  • gain real-world experience
  • learn transferrable skills and improve skillsets for the workplace
  • professionally network
  • bolster your CV and career prospects

The department actively encourages students to take part in these schemes.

Hundreds of placements are advertised by the Careers Service each year through JobsLive, and opportunities will also be promoted by the department on a bulletin board, the College’s VLE (Blackboard) and via social media.

The department of chemistry pays for all undergraduates to become members of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and students therefore have the chance to take advantage of the RSC's careers fairs and workshops too!
