CHEM8101Industrial Placement for Integrated Masters Students

This module is not approved as a discovery module

Module summary

During 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.

Objectives

To 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.

Learning outcomes
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.


Syllabus

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).

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 Feedback

Students 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.
