Course Overview

This module aims to help students assimilate materials studied at different points during the whole undergraduate Chemistry degree programme. Students will find this module particularly useful in helping them prepare for the general exam papers. The course consists of a series of written exercises and workshops, held in the second half session, covering material studied in the earlier years of the course. The workshops are intended to review fundamental topics and ideas in the context of the more advanced material studied at Honours level. Course assessment will include written homework and a short oral exam.
