Chemical Physics

We have been teaching Chemical Physics at UEA for almost 50 years; today some of the most adventurous scientific activity can be found in this field. Exciting and intellectually challenging, our BSc degree will introduce you to topics across the full scope of the subject, such as the fabrication and properties of nanoparticles, laser systems and their applications, microsensors, computational modelling and photonics. You will benefit from our interdisciplinary and coherent approach, which brings together chemistry, physics and mathematics. We are a leading centre for chemistry research in the UK, with 98% of our research ranked as world-leading or internationally excellent in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). The School of Chemistry’s research themes are light and energy, the chemistry of materials and catalysis, and the chemistry of life processes. These themes influence and run throughout our taught programmes, ensuring you learn at the forefront of research in the field. **Course Structure** Over the course you will cover topics across the full scope of chemical physics, as well as developing the transferable skills required of professional scientists. **Year 1** You will study a range of modules, covering topics including: physics, basic organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, quantum mechanics and be introduced to laboratory based work. **Year 2** Your second year will consist of laboratory work, including a specialised laboratory module on chemical physics. You’ll also explore core chemistry topics and have additional lectures in mathematics and theoretical chemistry. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll undertake an extended research project alongside further modules in advanced topics in chemistry. Your project could be a computational or laboratory project, typically a research project focusing on one of the key areas of modern chemical physics, such as laser interactions, surface chemistry, light harvesting and smart materials. For this you will spend time in a research group, usually working alongside postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Your research project will not only build up your research skills, therefore improving your employment prospects, it is also an enjoyable and stimulating experience, and can lead to publication in a scientific journal. You’ll also take further modules in physical chemistry and analytical chemistry, and well as choosing additional optional modules. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
