Chemistry Project (Year 3) (F1176)

Spring teaching

This chemistry project consists of two original five-week investigations, normally in the general area of chemical synthesis and analysis.

You design your own projects in consultation with a relevant member of faculty.

In some exceptional circumstances, you may be able to do a single 10-week investigation, although greater depth will then be expected.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 50 hours of contact time and about 100 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

We regularly review our modules to incorporate student feedback, staff expertise, as well as the latest research and teaching methodology. We’re planning to run these modules in the academic year 2021/22. However, there may be changes to these modules in response to COVID-19, staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
