New themes for the chemistry degrees

chemistry at Brighton logoAt Brighton we’ve always been proud of the way our courses relate to real world applications. We’ve had a Pharmaceutical & Chemical Sciences course and our Chemistry degrees have the opportunity to learn biochemistry and geochemistry alongside the core chemistry and analytical subjects.

New students in 2020 will now have two new themes to add to the biochemistry and geochemistry options that they study, these will be pharmaceutical sciences and environmental pollution. This ties in nicely with the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Making the Difference campaign highlighting the applications of chemistry to many global issues.

Here at Brighton we have cutting edge research in all of the theme areas and like to pass that on to our students during their time here, working on real research problems in both third and fourth year projects with academic staff.

You can find out more about our courses on the University of Brighton website with the detailed specifications of the degrees showing the theme. Come see what you can do with chemistry!

Final year research project submission day

Jaspreet (BSc(hons) Pharmaceutical & Chemical Sciences) and Lorraine (BSc(hons) Chemistry) submitting their dissertations for binding

Charis and Emily (both BSc(hons) Chemistry) submitting their projects to our friendly school office staff member Matt

This morning our final year BSc and third year MChem students are submitting their research project dissertations. They have been working hard in the lab all year doing some fantastic innovative and challenging research.  The final challenge is a defence of their work by oral viva voce exam, but we’ll give them a couple of weeks break before that!

In the meantime they will enjoy ChemSoc’s night out in celebration of submitting their work (and the second year’s analytical validation report) and continue to work hard on their other modules. The end is in sight now though, well done to all of you!
