Thursday 11th April 2019, 0930 to 1530

The UEA Chemistry department has been delivering the highest quality degree programmes and research for over 50 years. You will experience a typical day in the life of a UEA student - a lecture and a practical presented by some of the department’s 30 academic faculty. 

The material will support your current studies so could help you in your A levels too!  You will also have the chance to meet existing students, tour the campus and its facilities, and pick up useful tips for applying to university.

It is free to attend but please bring your own lunch to eat by the UEA Broad, or sample the food at the student cafes and food outlets. Places are limited – to register interest and to receive application information, simply send an email with your contact details to chem.taster@uea.ac.uk.
