Chemical Physics University of Bristol

Undergraduate

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, so there is less organic and synthetic chemistry and more physical and 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.
