Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - School of Chemistry Advice

Our students and staff are at the heart of all that we do.  In the face of the coronavirus outbreak, our priority is making sure our students and staff are given the support that they need.  We contingency measures in place that ensure the safety of staff and students in the School community. Please ensure that you abide by all guidance and directions when in the School.

Teaching for the academic year has been reconfigured to ensure delivery of our curriculum in a manner that is safe. Details are being shared with each Year group but in general, lecture delivery is online, with tutorials in person. Tutorial time is lengthened to maximise the time available to students.  The laboratory curriculum is reconfigured so that the work that can be carried out online is first in sequence, with plans to introduce in-person laboratory work in Semester 2, should social distancing guidelines reduce. Laboratory work for undergraduate Senior Honours years and taught postgraduate courses will continue as much as possible. Students will be able to study at distance or in person, however their personal circumstances allow. Please refer to individual course information for specific details

Please ensure that you also continue to monitor the University Coronavirus webpage for official guidance and advice.
