Chemistry with Education
Once you have sent your application to UCAS, your form will be considered by the Chemistry admissions team. Each application is given individual consideration, paying particular attention to the subjects studied, the reference and the personal statement. Factors such as academic achievement, and potential, your skills and aptitudes and your motivation and commitment will all be considered. Candidates who are shortlisted will be invited to an interview before a final decision is made.
Applications received before the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2012 will be given equal consideration. Applications received after this date may be considered if there are still places available, however as the number of applications per place can be very high, we strongly advise you to apply as early as possible.
You will be notified by UCAS as soon as a decision has been made.
The Department views gap years positively and we are happy to consider applicants who are asking for deferred entry.
See also general information on deferred entry.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a Chemistry Department UCAS Day (see section below on interviews). The visit will provide you with an opportunity to see the facilities we have to offer, including our research and teaching buildings, attend a mini-lecture, find out about courses, accommodation and student life, and to meet staff and current students.
See also general information on Open Days.
The Chemistry Department UCAS Day (see above) includes a one-to-one discussion with an academic member of staff. This is an important part of the selection process and in most cases we will be unable to make you an offer unless you attend.
In normal circumstances, applicants will not be required to sit additional selection tests.
