Normally successful completion of associated Work or European Placement or associated component courses of 4M Chemistry (combined) or admission to the MSc degree programme in Chemistry or Chemistry with medicinal chemistry.
Main Assessment In: April/May
Are reassessment opportunities available for all summative assessments? No
Reassessments are normally available for all courses, except those which contribute to the Honours classification. For non Honours courses, students are offered reassessment in all or any of the components of assessment if the satisfactory (threshold) grade for the overall course is not achieved at the first attempt. This is normally grade D3 for undergraduate students and grade C3 for postgraduate students. Exceptionally it may not be possible to offer reassessment of some coursework items, in which case the mark achieved at the first attempt will be counted towards the final course grade. Any such exceptions for this course are described below.
To provide students with a broad scientific education at tertiary level, together with a wide and rigorous treatment of advanced topics across all areas of chemistry, appropriate for an aspiring professional chemist.
Intended Learning Outcomes of Course
Students should be able to demonstrate a knowledge and thorough understanding of the central facts and the experimental basis of advanced topics across all areas of chemistry. They should be able to solve problems of a numerical or logical nature in the context of this understanding. In addition students will be expected to obtain information from written and electronic archived material, to interpret critically this information and show a high level of ability in both written and oral skills.
