Key Stage 5

We offer potential students a range of opportunities to experience what is involved in taking chemistry at degree level.

Research in chemistry - Work Shadowing

As part of our programme of outreach activities for schools and colleges, we organise a work shadowing day for Year 12 chemistry students considering a university degree in chemistry or a related subject. There will be opportunities to carry out practical work in the new research laboratories and to attend a short lecture on a related topic.

We hope that the opportunity to experience working with current chemistry research students will prove valuable in assisting Year 12 chemistry students in planning their future studies and career paths. We have been running this event for nearly 10 years now and it has always proved very popular with participants.

Twilight practical sessions

These days are designed to give students experience of practical work in our state-of-the-art teaching laboratories. Students will carry out a range of practical techniques and get the chance to see some of our other research facilities, under the guidance of experienced postgraduate demonstrators. 

For further information on any of these opportunities please contact:
