Chemistry Discover Day (formerly known as Masterclasses)

It will give you the opportunity to be involved in experimental techniques not encountered or available at school. It will also give you 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. This will introduce you to many

The lab work will be complemented by our 'Chemistry of the Senses' demonstration lecture, a presentation on potential careers with a university chemistry qualification. You will also benefit from and a tour of the facilities in the School of Chemistry guided by current undergraduate chemistry students.
