RSC Meet the Universities
(22 July 2009)
As featured in the August edition of RSC News.
The Admissions Tutor (Dr Hughes) and Outreach Manager (Dr Beeby) attended the Royal Society of Chemistry's Meet the Universities event at The Royal Horticultural Halls, London on 6th July. The event was attended by nearly 400 lower sixth formers from all over England and representatives of the majority of UK Chemistry departments.
Drs Hughes and Beeby answered many queries from potential applicants about the structure of the Durham Chemistry and Natural Sciences courses, as well as questions about colleges, the city and university facilities. Spectroscopy in a suitcase, funded by the RSC Chemistry for our Future project, was used to demonstrate the principles of one of the key tools in the chemist's armoury. It was a very busy and hopefully successful day and we look forward to receiving UCAS applications from many of those who attended.
