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.


International Research Opportunities Programme (IROP)

The department of chemistry offers Year 3 MSci students the exciting chance to participate in the summer international research opportunities programme (IROP).

These research placement schemes present a unique opportunity to gain international research experience and to experience life in another country during the summer break.

Participants in the schemes can expect:

  • to spend a minimum of 8 weeks working in a safe yet challenging research environment in an international setting
  • to work with world-renowned researchers on cutting-edge projects
  • to receive pre-departure support and assistance with visas, accommodation and registration at the partner university

Placements take place during the summer break from the end of June to the end of August. Exact dates and application procedures for each partner scheme will be confirmed each year.

For more information about student experiences and previous partner universities please visit this college webpage.
