    Description

    Chemical Physics has been an integral component of the School of Chemistry since its inception. Now a major scientific discipline in its own right, this is a subject whose content draws on topics in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, leading into rapidly developing interdisciplinary areas such as Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Students on this degree course acquire an appreciation of these and many other topics, whilst developing high level specialist expertise across the subject area.

    The three-year Honours degree programme comprises core Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Physics and Mathematics lecture units, plus laboratory work providing access to sophisticated instrumentation. Compared to the Chemistry content of the Honours degree in Chemistry, this programme is supplemented by teaching on topics including: electricity and magnetism; the properties of molecules and materials; nanoscience and nanotechnology, electromagnetism, photons, lasers and optics; special relativity and mass-energy; polymers, self-assembly and colloidal systems; fluid dynamics, waves and energy transfer processes; mathematical series, complex variables; calculus and vector fields; matrix algebra. Further topics are determined by the choices each student makes from the units available.

    UEA offers a positively integrated approach by delivering the primary Chemistry and Physics teaching for this degree programme within a single department, while the Mathematics is mostly taught in the School of Mathematics. The Course Director is a Professor of Chemical Physics; all other lecturers in the School of Chemistry are also professionally qualified chemists and physicists. As an internationally recognized centre of interdisciplinary research, this provides a richly research-led context for state of the art teaching.

    Course Content

    Year 1

    The first year is taught by both the School of Chemistry and the School of Mathematics.
    Modules include mathematics for scientists, an introduction to laboratory based work and
    special topics in chemical physics. These are in addition to modules in basic organic, inorganic and physical chemistry and quantum mechanics.

    Year 2

    The second year consists of laboratory work, including a specialised laboratory module
    on chemical physics, teaching in the core chemistry topics and additional lectures in
    mathematics and theoretical chemistry.
    Please note that the Year Abroad and Year in Industry are taken between Years 2 and 3.

    Final Year

    This year involves a research project in chemical physics 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 alongside doctoral researchers working on research council-sponsored projects, in areas at the forefront of their field. Many students have found that as well as completing a project that helps them to achieve a good degree, this module can lead onto a research degree. There are further modules of core
    material in physical chemistry and analytical chemistry with a range of optional modules.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Students for whom English is a Foreign language

    We welcome applications from students from all academic backgrounds. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading). Recognised English Language qualifications include:

    • IELTS: 6. overall (minimum 5.5 in any component)
    • TOEFL: Internet-based score of 78 overall (minimum 20 in Speaking component, 17 in Writing and Listening components and 18 in Reading components.
    • PTE: 55 overall (minimum 51 in any component).

    If you do not meet the University's entry requirements, our INTO Language Learning Centre offers a range of university preparation courses to help you develop the high level of academic and English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study.

    Interviews

    The majority of candidates will not be called for an interview. However, for some students an interview will be requested. These are normally quite informal and generally cover topics such as your current studies, reasons for choosing the course and your personal interests and extra-curricular activities.

    Gap Year

    We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year, believing that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry and may wish to contact the appropriate Admissions Office directly to discuss this further.

    Special Entry Requirements
