|CHEM8101||Industrial Placement for Integrated Masters Students|
This module is not approved as a discovery module
Module summaryDuring an industrial placement year of an integrated Masters programme, students complete distance learning coursework which is returned to the School for marking. Marks for this work are returned to the students within 4 weeks of submission, in addition to detailed feedback on the work.
ObjectivesTo provide students with educational resources in the main branches of the subject (organic, inorganic and physical) which are appropriate to level 3 of an integrated masters programme and which will provide useful background for the level 4 options which students will study on their return to Leeds.
Students will improve their skills in independent study. Students will enhance their background knowledge in areas of the subject which may include; chemical bonding, molecular self-organization, chemical kinetics, organic synthesis, medicinal chemistry, molecular symmetry, organometallic chemistry, solid-state inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry and atmospheric chemistry. Students will develop improved problem-solving skills in some of these areas.
Students will choose six topics from a list which may include: chemical bonding, molecular self-organization, chemical kinetics, organic synthesis, medicinal chemistry, molecular symmetry, organometallic chemistry, solid-state inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry and atmospheric chemistry. The syllabus from each topic will include a selection of material which is also taught on level 3 modules for Leeds-based (non-placement) students (with which modules the current module is, thus, mutually exclusive).
|Delivery type||Number||Length hours||Student hours|
|Independent online learning hours||90.00|
|Private study hours||208.00|
|Total Contact hours||2.00|
|Total hours (100hr per 10 credits)||300.00|
Private studyAll of the work conducted in this module is carried out independently. Students are provided with resources via the VLE, which may include lecture notes, recordings made by lecture/desktop capture, and references to journal articles / book chapters, and provided with detailed feedback following each piece of coursework.
Opportunities for Formative FeedbackStudents have deadlines throughout the year to submit work to the School. Work will be marked within 4 weeks of being submitted and returned to the student with detailed feedback.
Methods of assessment
