The Graduate Diploma in Science (Advanced) in Chemistry is a one-year program designed to extend students' knowledge and skills through a supervised research project together with advanced coursework in chemistry.
This program provides students with the opportunity to design and conduct, under supervision, independent research. Research projects will be in an area of experimental or theoretical chemistry currently relevant to one of the research groups in the School of Chemistry. Students should develop skills in managing a scientific research project, writing scientific reports, and making an oral presentation. Students also complete advanced coursework subjects, which will further their specialist knowledge in areas of chemistry research.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the Chemistry specialisation, Graduates should able to:
- Apply an in-depth knowledge and understanding of Chemical science;
- Conduct the process and practice of chemical research;
- Use investigative skills and critical thought to evaluate information and analyse experimental data;
- Apply experimental and/or theoretical skills in areas of Chemical research;
- Demonstrate oral and written communication skills;
