You’ll select your elective subjects from a wide range available. Likewise, there’s a diverse range of professional skills subjects on offer – choose from a selection that includes modelling, working with data, ethics, business tools, and communication.

If you’d like to gain even more real-world experience, you can choose to complete an internship in a science or technology-related workplace for course credit.

All students undertake a research project, over 4 semesters, working on a real-world chemistry research question. To support you and provide direction, you’ll be matched with one of our expert researchers.
