Further Information

As well as an insight to various topical chemistry issues such as chemical reactions, forensic science, oil formation, drilling and oil economy, writing formulae, the taste of chocolate, cosmetics, acids and alkalis and so much more, we offer opportunities of extra supported study during lunchtime tutorials and organised study during exam leave for senior students. We are a very supportive department who help students achieve their potential, improve their knowledge, build on skills and learn by a variety of teaching methods. We like to celebrate success by issuing certificates during the course, issuing a prize at prize giving, displaying student work and giving well structured feedback.
