Our Discover Day (formerly 'Masterclass') is held in our state-of-the-art undergraduate synthetic laboratory. It will give students an idea of what it's like to study Chemistry at A Level and beyond.
At Discover Day, pairs of students will make and purify an ester. This is an essential ingredient as a flavouring in sweets and other confectionary products.
The lab work is complemented by our Chemistry of the Senses demonstration lecture. This is a presentation on potential careers with a university chemistry qualification.
You will also have a tour of the facilities in the School of Chemistry, guided by current undergraduate chemistry students.
This is a free event but numbers are limited. Students do not need to be nominated by their school to attend.
