Our recently produced 2018 Chemistry Admissions newsletter, prepared by our undergraduate admissions team, illustrates our continued success in both teaching and research. Notable achievements have included our outstanding NSS results, our jump to second place in the Guardian University League Table, the successful launch of our landmark MOOC, called Exploring Everyday Chemistry, and our celebrations to mark 10 years since we gained our Athena SWAN Gold Award.
The newsletter also features some of our award winners, including Royal Society of Chemistry research prizes, as well as research highlights – from new ways of safely trapping carbon dioxide, to the development of novel antibiotics and a new technique to enhance the performance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in identifying disease. Some of our research funding is also included, notably the award of £1.6 million to invest in a technique called cryoelectron microscopy (cryo-eM), which helps us to see, for example, how drugs get into cells.
Our UCAS offer holders will be posted a hardcopy of Chemistry Admissions and it is also available on the web: Chemistry Admissions Newsletter 2018 (PDF , 5,921kb)
The admissions team has also recently revamped our undergraduate course pages for prospective applicants for 2019/20 entry, as well as producing a new animation video to promote our undergraduate student journey – from preparing to study, to progression through the four years of our MChem degree, highlighting course options and our distinctive college-based teaching, followed by graduation and employment.
