The Chemistry Residential Summer School at Queen Mary University of London is a three-day program for Year 12 students from Schools based in the UK who have chosen to study chemistry (A level or IB) and are interested in pursuing a degree in Chemical Sciences.
Attending this school will give participants the opportunity to experience a Russell Group university and gain a real insight into studying chemistry at a research-intensive institution. The three-day residential school will involve workshops, lectures, and laboratory sessions in our new £5.5 million world class teaching laboratory. Internationally leading scientists will contribute to the delivery of the different activities and will also offer multiple opportunities to discuss career options and degree choices.
Accommodation (full board basis) is offered in our Halls of Residence, based at Mile End, where students will have the opportunity to explore the campus and all its facilities. There will be multiple opportunities to interact and engage with our excellent student ambassadors, all of which are currently studying chemistry at Queen Mary.
There will be three laboratory sessions where you will gain first-hand experience of working in the undergraduate teaching laboratory to carry out your own experiments independently. You will be using a range of equipment and technology, some of which may be new to you. These experiments will complement the KS5 curriculum and enhance your chemistry knowledge and technical skills. In workshops and lectures, you will undertake sessions on NMR and IR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, as well as engage in problem classes to test your understanding. Finally, there will be a workshop on scientific programming with academics specialising in computational and theoretical chemistry.
Members of our admission team will provide sessions on interview skills and personal statements in support of your UCAS application. The academic program will be complemented by social activities in the evenings.
