The dedication of Warwick Chemistry to provide a rich and inclusive learning environment has shone through in the 2019 NSS results which reveal over 96% satisfaction.

In testament to a student-focussed approach, the department has seen the highest Russell Group scores for availability of academic staff when needed, feeling part of a community, and other key measures such as receptiveness and responsiveness to student views and course feedback.

Head of Chemistry, Professor Mike Ward, commented:

“We are delighted that our students are so happy with their experience in this department, awarding us one of the top scores for overall student satisfaction in the Russell Group. We work hard – in partnership with the student body – to ensure that our students have the best possible learning opportunities and leave us ready for their future challenges.”

Who was Sir John Warcup Cornforth? The chemist who overcame deafness to win the Nobel Prize

Sir John Warcup Cornforth was a Nobel Prize-winning chemist who was born a century ago (7 September 1917).

Sir John was known for his work in the field of stereochemistry, the study of how the spatial arrangement of atoms affects the properties of a chemical compound. He went on to study at the University of Oxford and work as a professor at the universities of Warwick, Suffolk and California in Los Angeles.

In celebration of what would have been his 100th birthday, Sir John has been honoured with a Google Doodle.
