Semester 1, Semester 2
This course provides you with the opportunity to acquire advanced current knowledge in Chemistry. In addition, you will develop a capacity for independent research and problem-solving that can lead to workplace research and/or a degree by higher research (Masters or PhD).

At the completion of the course you will have:

  • acquired advanced knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in a range of Chemistry disciplines;
  • developed analytical and synthetic laboratory skills appropriate to various disciplines of chemical research;
  • developed advanced skills in accessing, critically evaluating and communicating the outputs of current, peer-reviewed, Chemistry literature;
  • received research training in experimental design, critical thinking and research methods that allow you to pursue a potential career in chemistry research;
  • demonstrated the ability to produce an original written research thesis;
  • developed the necessary skills to communicate your research both orally and in written form.

Course structure

A four-semester program will comprise:

  1. 50% of undergraduate units with no introductory-level (100) units permitted and a maximum of 25% of intermediate-level (200) units [as listed in Schedule A].
  2. 100% comprising postgraduate-level (400, 500, 600 or 700) units [as listed in Schedule B].
  3. A thesis (50%) which shall embody the results of research carried out under the direction of a supervisor or supervisors appointed by the appropriate School [as listed in Schedule C].

A three-semester program will comprise 2. and 3. above.

Note: a credit average for all postgraduate-level units must be obtained before progression to the research thesis component. Students failing to reach this standard will exit with the Graduate Diploma of Applied Science
