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 2014-2015‌‌.
