Strwythur y cwrs

Each year is made up of modules totalling 120 credits

The preliminary year (year one) provides a solid foundation in science, with 40 credits core chemistry, and 80 credits of options.  20 further credits of optional Chemistry and 20 credits of Maths are available, and students are encouraged to choose these modules, though prior qualifications (e.g. a good A level in Maths) might mean other options can be chosen.

In year two you take compulsory chemistry modules worth 110 credits, including 30 credits of practical, and an optional module worth 10 credits, which may be in chemistry or any other subject.   

In year three you will take compulsory chemistry modules in various different subject areas, including a 30 credit practical module.

In year four you will undertake practical work in the autumn semester (20 credits). This is followed by a specialised research project in the spring semester (30 credits).  You will also take a compulsory theory module in each branch of the subject in the autumn semester (40 credits) and choose from a range of optional modules in the spring semester (3 x 10 credits).   

 

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022

Blwyddyn ragarweiniol

Mae'r cwrs blwyddyn rhagarweiniol yn cynnwys modiwlau mewn biowyddorau, cemeg a mathemateg. Bydd eich modiwlau yn dibynnu ar eich cefndir academaidd a'ch trafodaethau gyda staff wrth gofrestru.

Blwyddyn un

Yn y flwyddyn gyntaf ein bwriad yw ennyn eich diddordeb yn y pwnc, tra hefyd yn rhoi sylfaen wybodaeth gref i adeiladu arni yn ystod y blynyddoedd sy’n dilyn. Mae ein modiwlau cemeg craidd wedi'u seilio ar bum prif faes pwnc (cemeg ddadansoddol anorganig, organig, ffisegol a chyflwr solid), ac yn cynnwys y sgiliau allweddol i gemegwyr. Cânt eu hategu gan ystod o fodiwlau dewisol, sy'n eich galluogi i gael dewis o ran eich astudiaethau ac ehangu’ch profiad. Gallwch hefyd astudio modiwlau dewisol mewn disgyblaethau megis y gwyddorau biolegol, ffiseg neu ieithoedd modern.

Blwyddyn dau

Yn yr ail flwyddyn byddwch yn astudio modiwlau gorfodol uwch sy’n eich galluogi i ymarfer a datblygu sgiliau newydd drwy eu cymhwyso i ystod eang o broblemau.

Os ydych chi'n cael o leiaf cyfartaledd o 55% yn yr ail flwyddyn, bydd gennych y cyfle i drosglwyddo i gwrs MChem Cemeg cyn dechrau’r drydedd. Os yw treulio cyfnod mewn diwydiant ar leoliad gwaith yn apelio atoch, mae angen i chi fynegi’ch diddordeb erbyn dechrau’r ail flwyddyn, a throsglwyddo i'r cyrsiau BSc Cemeg gyda Blwyddyn mewn Diwydiant erbyn dechrau’r drydedd flwyddyn.

Blwyddyn tri

Yn y drydedd flwyddyn, byddwch yn cynnal prosiect
ymchwil sylweddol yn ystod semester y gwanwyn. Byddwch yn cwblhau modiwl theori gorfodol ym mhedair cangen o'r pwnc ac yn dewis o blith ystod o ddewisiadau.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Chemistry student in laboratory
Lectures are supplemented with practical work in our well-equipped laboratory facilities..

Dysgu ac asesu

We aim to provide an exceptional environment for chemical education and our undergraduate degrees reflect our current research strengths and interests, with final-year projects fully integrated into our research groups. Your course of study has been designed to enable you to realise your maximum potential. We aim to deliver expert teaching and comprehensive pastoral care.

Teaching is undertaken through a series of lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical classes. These are supported by material hosted on Learning Central, the University’s virtual learning environment.

Lectures

One major element of teaching is through lectures, typically 10-12 per week of 50 minutes duration. Subject matter is supported in various ways depending on the topic. This can include slides, computer presentations, handouts and course summaries.

Laboratory work

The second part of teaching involves practical classes, again typically averaging about 10-12 hours each week. In year one the emphasis is on basic techniques and simple but accurate recording of observations. Skills are taught by practical demonstrations and supported by a range of e-learning resources freely available and readily accessible to all students.

Self-testing offers insight into different practical techniques, and the chance to correct mistakes before attending laboratory sessions.

Laboratory work progresses towards substantial experiments that need careful planning, analysis and interpretation of results, as well as professional standard reporting. Practical work provides experience in all the main laboratory procedures and techniques, and is designed to extend your level of proficiency in practical chemistry, preparing you to undertake an independent research project in the final stages of your degree.

Small-group teaching

Small group tutorial classes are given in all years, allowing practice, discussion and analysis of the lecture material, as well as the development of communication skills. Sessions are delivered by three allocated staff members, one specialist in each of the areas of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. The same three tutors usually remain assigned to each group throughout your degree.

Project

All our Chemistry courses have a major element of independent, supervised project work. In the final year of the BSc course you will work on a project in your preferred area of chemistry, and be allocated a topic to investigate or develop. Working under the guidance of an expert in the field, you will present results of your work orally and in writing. In the past, this has led to undergraduates co-authoring published papers.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

Every student has three academic tutors, one of whom also acts as your personal tutor. You will see one of your tutors each week, either as part of a small tutorial group or on a one-to-one basis in a personal tutorial.  All staff operate an open-door policy, meaning you can always approach staff with issues, academic or otherwise.  

You will be given access to a comprehensive handbook appropriate to your year of study, containing details of the School’s procedures and policies.

We make extensive use of the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (Learning Central) to share information.
