Faculty of Science - Chemistry



This module provides a balance between core Chemistry and Biochemistry. It includes a course which is an independent research project, in which the student works in a research laboratory in one of the Departments of Chemistry or Biochemistry, typically during the final year of study. This module can be completed only within a BSc (Hons) degree.

Admission Requirements


Completion of first year requirements with no failures. Students must have an average of at least 70% in 3.0 principal courses with no mark less than 60% in any course, including:
 
 
1.0 course: Biology 1001A and Biology 1002B.
 
1.0 course from: (Calculus 1000A/B or Calculus 1500A/B or Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1412A/B or the former Applied Mathematics 1412A/B); and (Applied Mathematics 1201A/B, or Calculus 1301A/B, or Calculus 1501A/B, or Mathematics 1600A/B, or Mathematics 1229A/B or Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1411A/B or Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1414A/B or the former Applied Mathematics 1411A/B or the former Applied Mathematics 1414A/B), or the former Applied Mathematics 1413.
 
1.0 course from: (Physics 1201A/B or Physics 1401A/B or Physics 1501A/B or the former Physics 1028A/B or the former Physics 1301A/B) and (Physics 1202A/B or Physics 1402A/B or Physics 1502A/B or the former Physics 1029A/B or the former Physics 1302A/B). (This 1.0 course is required but is not considered to be a principal course.)
 
Note: Biology 1201A with a minimum mark of 70% can be used to replace Biology 1001A, and Biology 1202B with a minimum mark of 70% can be used to replace Biology 1002B.
 
Note: Physics 1101A/B with a minimum mark of 80% can be used to replace Physics 1201A/B.
