Chemistry Work Experience

- Export as iCalendar
Location: Department of Chemistry - University of Warwick

The Chemistry Department at the University of Warwick is offering a unique work experience placement opportunity for students (years 10, 11 and 12) from Coventry and Warwickshire schools. This work experience would suit individuals who are specifically looking to study Chemistry at the University of Warwick. The three-day programme will allow students to gain hands-on experience of working in a chemistry lab and provide an insight into studying at a top university as well.

You will work as part of a (30-student) group, to familiarise yourselves with analytical techniques such as IR, NMR and Mass spectrometry in our teaching labs. You will also work as part of a smaller (~ 5-student) team in the research labs of some of our academics, thus giving you the opportunity to engage with an actual research environment. Finally, each team will also present their reflections and their results to the rest of the participants on the last day, thus developing your communication skills.

The programme will run from Wednesday, July 10th to Friday, July 12th, 2024, from 9.30am to 16:30pm, on campus at the University of Warwick.

Applications to participate in this program are now open at:

We are expecting a high number of applications for this event. Thus, each application will be assessed (on a rolling basis, every month) and places offered based on both meeting the eligibility criteria and on the quality of the student’s CV and personal statement.

Once a student’s application form is submitted, the nominated teacher and parent/carer will immediately receive a link for completing a verification form. The closing date for applications is Friday, 17 May 2023 at 5 PM. We will contact applicants and their respective schools in June (at the latest) to inform them as to whether they have been successful.
