The Launch of 'Chemistry@York'

Posted on 21 November 2011

Students applying for an undergraduate chemistry programme for entry in 2012 or 2013 now have access from point of application, to a new, distinctive VLE site called ‘Chemistry@York’.

Prospective students access the site via a username and password. The site has been developed specifically to form an early engagement with students during the crucial decision-making ‘1–in–5’ stage and provides a unique insight into life as a Chemistry student at York. The site addresses four key areas:

  • Application Information
  • Our Courses
  • Careers and Employability
  • Featured Items
Skills Map

For example, under Our Courses there is detailed information on our diverse and innovative range of teaching methods and small group college-based teaching. We have also included a typical student week and 5 videos along with lab scripts, quotes from current students on each of the four main themes and screencasts explaining how our tutorials and workshops support our students throughout each year of their studies.

The creation of the site has been fully funded by the University’s Strategic Teaching and Learning Fund and it is envisaged that it will be an example of good practice for other York academic departments.
