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.

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.
