Environmental Scientist visits chemistry students

20 March 2018

Environmental Scientist, Dr Stephen Boult, from the University of Manchester, visited Ashton Sixth Form College.

Dr Stephen Boult is a lecturer at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. He is also the Environmental MSc Programme Director for Molecular Environmental Science. 

He presented to Chemistry students during a lunchtime 'Imagine Your Future' session. Particularly focussing on the research he works closely on, he gave the students an insight in to the type of work and learning that takes places at degree-level of study. Students with a passion for Chemistry were able to understand the level of detail and focus they could potentially go on to study, following the completion of their A-Level or Mixed Study programme. 

The breadth of career pathways available to students is growing year on year and visiting lectures, such as this, inspire students currently studying at Ashton Sixth Form College to think about their options. 

Previous students who have chosen to study Science and Maths A-Level programmes have gone on to a vast range of degrees such as Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, Earth Sciences at the University College London, Chemistry at Manchester University and Chemical and Nuclear Engineering at the University of Leeds.
