Our industry-standard facilities are bright, modern andwell-equipped. You will carry out experiments in a small group, so you willbe able to get lots of hands-on experience with specialistequipment, and will get to know your lab group very well. Knowledgeable and helpful demonstrators and staff are alwayson hand to help you learn the practical techniques and guideyour understanding. The experiments are carefully designed so you will learnstandard techniques and then apply your knowledge toinvestigation and problem solving. Many of our practicals are unique and innovative because theyhave been designed by our academic researchers. Studentsmay get to work on an NMR spectrometer that uses the Earth’smagnetic field to create images (similar to the MRI scannersused in hospitals), use a 3D printer to print objects, and uselasers to study chemical reactions. All the equipment that you need is provided, including yourlaboratory coat, book and glasses, and we have never chargedfor breakages so you can learn in a stress-free environment.WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE MODULE?“Easily labs, it’s the most fun by far and I like the rangeof topics covered in them.

rkshops are problem solving classes where questionsare set for you to attempt. Typically run in groups of 20-40students, these provide opportunities for you to work withyour peers as well as ask questions and get assistance fromacademic staff and teaching assistants on hand.Laboratory classes are amongst the most interesting andexciting part of any Chemistry student’s life. Classes in ourstate-of-the-art undergraduate labs will form an integral part ofyour learning.All of the teaching and learning activities are accessible throughthe virtual learning environment (VLE) – a one stop location foreverything you need. Each module has its own area containingmodule information, contacts for teaching staff, lecture notes,tutorial and workshop questions, recordings, forums and ofteninteractive quizzes. These stay with you throughout your time atWarwick so you can always access information and feedback fromprevious years.18SESSMENTMETHODSYou will be assessed by a mixtureof examinations and courseworkwith a minimum of 25% of eachyear being assessed work.Lectures are the main way that the content andtheory is delivered. You will encounter a range oflecturing styles that help you to learn in differentways including making your own notes, annotatingprinted handouts, problem solving activities andinteractive quizzes. Lecture theatres are equippedwith the latest technology including visualisers,cameras and sockets for student use. We endeavourto record all undergraduate lectures so you can watchthem later to enhance your understanding.Modules in the first and second year are supportedby tutorials with small groups of approximately 6-7students. These sessions are integrated with lecturesto reinforce key concepts; questions are set in advance,handed in and marked before the sessions so that thetutor can ensure that you progress your learning and getthe maximum benefit.NextA RANGEOF LECTURINGSTYLES THATHELP YOUTO LEARN INDIFFERENTWAYSThere is one period each year when all Chemistryexaminations take place, allowing you toconcentrate on other work during the rest ofthe year and consolidate your knowledge andunderstanding across all modules. In years one andtwo the examinations take place at the very end ofthe academic year, whilst in years three and fourexams are sat earlier in the year, allowing a focus onlabs or research in the latter stages.Coursework activities are integrated throughoutthe curriculum, and you will meet similar themesin different settings to strengthen and unite yourunderstanding. You will encounter a range ofassessment types that prepare you for employmentincluding written reports, group projects and oraland poster presentations. We believe that feedback should be accessible,timely and help you to continuously improve. We use a virtual learning environment so thatyou can see your feedback whenever you wantand wherever you are. We subscribe to a policy of returning all gradesand feedback within 20 working days.19
