Entry to many degrees in Science & Engineering is possible via other qualifications (eg HNC/D, Access, SWAP).
Chemical Physics combines aspects of physics and chemistry. It looks at the structure, properties and behaviour of molecules, atoms and condensed matter and emphasises the importance of a physical and numerical approach to the subject. You will investigate the latest experimental, theoretical and computational methods, and will develop the skills needed to be a good practical chemist, with a strong understanding of physics.
