The primary aim of our course is to help you develop the knowledge and skills needed by professional chemists.
The teaching staff in the Department help and encourage you to develop these skills by providing you with a variety of learning opportunities. The use of a Skills Log Book is encouraged as a means of helping students keep track of the skills they develop while at York.
