University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The first year gives you a comprehensive grounding in chemistry, physics and mathematics. Later years focus on atomic and molecular science and its interdisciplinary applications. You will also focus on areas at the interface between chemistry and physics, with less organic and synthetic chemistry and more physical and non-synthetic inorganic chemistry. Similarly, there is very little nuclear and particle physics after your first year, but an emphasis on materials science and nanoscience. As well as lectures and practical classes, small-group tutorials and workshops help develop your understanding of challenging and exciting concepts. You will undertake a project or scientific dissertation, working in a research group with an academic. The course is accredited by both the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
