Chemical Principles (F1174)

15 credits, Level 6

Autumn teaching

In the first two years of study, Chemistry is conventionally taught in three streams, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, with relatively few requirements on you to cross the boundaries between the sub-disciplines. This module is a broadly based, capstone module, designed for all chemistry majors, whatever their area of interest. It will demonstrate and explore the connections and synergies between various areas of core material, drawing on topics from all three years of the degree course.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 22 hours of contact time and about 128 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, we are constantly looking to improve and enhance our courses. There may be changes to modules in response to student demand or feedback, changes to staff expertise or updates to our curriculum. We may also need to make changes in response to COVID-19. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
