Subject Specific Visits and Opportunities for Students

Chemistry Mini Series – Polymer Science | Fri 20th May 2022 | 4-4.30pm

We are running a monthly mini-series of virtual events where you can hear first-hand from our world leading academics in Chemistry at Warwick on their research as well as life in the department.

In our next session, Professor Sebastien Perrier will discuss his passion for polymer science and how it covers a wide range of topics, from why we use glue to attach wings to planes, to how to cook an egg with liquid nitrogen, to the design of the next generation of vaccines.

Professor Sebastien Perrier grew up in France and moved to the UK to study his PhD in Polymer Chemistry at the University of Warwick. He then spent one year as Postdoctoral Fellow in Sydney at the University of New South Wales, before starting his independent academic career, first at the University of Leeds, then at the University of Sydney, before moving back to Warwick in 2014. Sebastien’s research focuses on polymers and materials, from their synthesis to their applications, both in materials science and for medical applications.

Register for Chemistry Mini Series - Polymer Science on 20th May @4pm

Liberal Arts in the UK – how does an interdisciplinary degree work in practice? Mon 6th June 2022 | 4.30-5.30pm

Liberal Arts is a relatively new phenomenon in UK higher education, and the last ten years it has seen extraordinary growth and the creation of new departments and programmes. Yet a comparison of these departments reveals striking differences in how they are organised, the kind of degree they offer, and how students are taught. Join faculty from University of Warwick, University of Manchester, and University of Birmingham as they explore the question: what is a UK Liberal Arts education?
