Content

Years 1 and 2: Initially you will study chemistry, physics and mathematics. In the following year you will study chemistry and physics.

Years 3 and 4: If you progress to Honours (years three and four) you will study in physics: a range of courses including quantum mechanics, thermal physics, solid state physics, waves and diffraction, electromagnetism, nuclear and particle physics, and atomic systems. In chemistry: various aspects of physical and inorganic chemistry including catalysis, solid state chemistry, coordination chemistry, quantum mechanics and symmetry, spectroscopy, thermodynamics and diffraction.

You will gain an in-depth knowledge of chemistry, physics, mathematics and computing, and will be able to tackle most problems in chemistry and physics. In the final year, you will work closely with a member of staff on a research project.
