This combined course aims to provide students with the skills to teach the next generation about the wonders of chemistry. The Chemistry with Education programme allows students to gain a fundamental grounding in chemistry along with the intellectual and research skills needed for a career in teaching. The course has been developed in collaboration with the School of Education, which works closely with both primary and secondary schools. They have developed a curriculum and mode of teaching that is in line with employer expectations. As part of the programme students will undertake teaching placements with local schools. Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and general living costs when on placement. The course is designed to encourage a collaborative approach with students engaging with one another, academics and teachers. This can support critical reading, debate, reflection on experience and research into topics of interest.
All students will be given the chance to gain core knowledge in the fundamentals of chemistry in the first year, dealing with topics such as an synthetic methodologies and molecular characterisation; laboratory techniques; molecular structure, bonding and mechanism; and electronic structure, spectroscopy and reactivity in p-block compounds. The second and third years still involve core chemistry but will also include a teaching placement in both years. Subjects can include education practice and science education as well as a third year research project, which could be carried out in a school and on a relevant modern area of science education. All students in the fourth year of the MChem programme currently have the opportunity to undertake a full-year placement. Students can choose a placement with one of the University’s industry or overseas partners, or in one of our research groups in education. Placements are conducted alongside advanced academic study, focusing on research frontiers in chemistry.
