Transition Year Work Placement Programme 2019
Transition Year students can enjoy a week of work experience with the School of Chemical Sciences, which includes working in a chemistry laboratory and learning the importance of safety when working with chemicals. Participants learn to synthesize and analyse pharmaceuticals, get a chance to use instrumentation, do some forensic analysis and learn about the applications of chemistry research. They also get a short course in Microsoft Powerpoint and give a mini presentation on their experience.
Alternatively, Transition Year students can spend a week at the School of Physical Sciences experiencing life as a physicist - doing hands on activities, such as fabricating dye sensitive solar cells and launching rockets. Students discover what it's like to study physics in a university environment and get a chance to attend first year lectures and laboratory sessions.
The application form for the 2019 Programme will available from 12.00 noon on 3rd September 2018. We regret that no applications can be accepted in advance of that date.
