Department of Chemistry coronavirus (COVID-19) update
I’m delighted to be able to let you know that the 2020/21 academic year will start in September as planned. Of course, how we deliver our undergraduate Chemistry courses will depend on government guidance on social distancing at the time and so the Department is preparing for different scenarios in order to maintain our distinctive teaching. This includes an emphasis on college-organised, small-group teaching in a supportive and friendly environment. Postgraduate courses will also commence in Autumn Term, including our taught MSc in Green Chemistry and Sustainable Industrial Technology, and we plan to accept new students for research programmes in October. Postgraduate teaching and research may also change, but planning and preparations are being made for these adjustments.Take a look at the proposed changes to courses and our teaching plans for our incoming Chemists. I very much look forward to welcoming you to the chemistry community at the University of York in the next academic year.
Professor Duncan Bruce, Head of Department
