This module aims to help students assimilate materials studied at different points during the whole undergraduate Chemistry degree programme. The course consists of a series of lectures 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. Reflective writing will ask students to look at the ‘big picture’ of chemistry in context and their own chemical identity.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
A series of lectures and workshops to review material covered throughout the chemistry programme, in preparation for ‘general chemistry’ oral and written exams. Integrating chemistry knowledge and a deeper understanding of chemistry in a wider context will be developed. Reflective writing will help students develop written and communication skills which are required by graduates in addition to more traditional problem solving approaches to chemistry exams.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
