Applying to University? 10 top tips from a chemistry Admissions Tutor
What better way to prepare yourself for a degree than a virtual interactive session with the chemistry admissions tutors themselves! Join this session to hear about the pitfalls and the golden nuggets of the application process so you can be prepared for what is ahead. All scientists are welcome to attend these sessions even if they are not sure of their choices as the same principles apply. During this session there is allotted time to ask questions about the transition from college to university directly rather than second guessing.
Student Ambassador Talk: Why You Should Study Chemistry
Find out from a real student why chemists are needed in the wider world, what potential careers it can lead to, interesting things they’ve learnt, and general university experience.
Analytical Chemistry Techniques
Join us in the virtual lab for a session on analytical techniques. We will cover how we make measurements and interpret our data tomake big discoveries! Molecules and atoms are small things so how we detect and quantify them is a key discipline in chemical and many other applied sciences and an important focus at the University of Plymouth. Previous sessions have focused on infra-red and mass spectroscopy. There may even be an opportunity for one person to remotely operate an ICP-MS…if you are well behaved!
Science Careers Talk
These talks will be led by Hayley Manners (Lecturer in Chemistry) and will explore the wide-ranging careers a science degree can open up, from working to make positive change in our environment, to human health and lifestyle, flavour chemistry and working with animals to name a few examples. Real examples of the types science careers that students and staff from the University of Plymouth have worked in, and the exciting places these careers have taken them will be shared.
