Comprehensive Chemistry

The Comprehensive Chemistry stream aims to provide students with a broad and balanced appreciation of key chemical concepts, a range of practical skills to work safely in the laboratory and the ability to apply standard methodology to the solution of problems in chemistry. It is designed to facilitate students who are determined to work for a degree that is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
