By exploring the study of matter from organic and physical chemistry to the periodic table and energy, you will understand how science works developing both practical and theoretical skills.
Studying in the Science and Maths department will give you access to state of the art scientific laboratories, specialist equipment and an experienced technical team, to help you to achieve and explore the scientific world.
You will develop your scientific knowledge and understanding to a high level. Chemistry is about problem solving and analysing. Modules include Practical skills, Periodic table, Core and Organic Chemistry.
Development of practical skills in chemistry: You will learn a wide variety of practical skills throughout the course in preparation for the written exams.
Foundations in chemistry: This module acts a bridge for you from GCSE Level Chemistry to A Level standard. You will cover topics relating to atomic structure, bonding and quantitative chemistry.
Periodic table and energy: The focus on this module is inorganic and physical chemistry. The module will discuss issues relating to sustainability, rates of reaction, equilibrium and enthalpy changes.
Core organic chemistry: This module will introduce you to organic chemistry and examine it's enormous role in pharmaceuticals and environmental concerns. You will explore topics such as aliphatic hydrocarbons, alkene isomerism and organic synthesis.
