Chemistry is an ever-evolving field, but this is something which is sometimes hard to capture in an undergraduate chemistry course. This course will take advantage of small class sizes and the excellent resources of Queen Mary and the greater London area to expand on your fundamental studies and give students a wide-ranging view on what working in the field of chemistry really looks like today.

Students, who will receive credits on this summer school, will achieve a broad understanding of modern chemistry techniques, such as nanomaterials and flow chemistry, and their applications through hands-on experience in the laboratory, discussions with experts and group activities. Students will also learn of the increasing challenges which face research and industrial chemists and how these challenges are being addressed as we move forward to the future.

Teaching in lectures and tutorials will be supplemented with guest lectures from industry experts, hands-on experience in Queen Mary’s cutting-edge research laboratories and a field trip in London to explore the history and future of chemistry as a science.
