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.

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!
