Undergraduate Course: Chemistry 3 Semester 1 Project (VS1) (CHEM09015)
|School||School of Chemistry
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 9 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Part-year visiting students only
|Summary||A level 9 laboratory project for visiting students. The project will be in the third year organic teaching laboratory, or, with prior agreement, in a research group.
The visiting student will work in the third year organic teaching laboratory for approximately 12 hours per week for 10 weeks, undertaking synthetic work based on experiments undertaken by our third year class. In addition, the visiting student will also participate in two transferable skills exercises, delivering an oral presentation on an academic topic and a problem-based learning group exercise.
Exceptionally, the visiting student may join one of our research groups for their laboratory project. This is only if the visiting student has the agreement of research group before arriving.
