To follow a BSc Degree in Chemistry it is compulsory to have passed Matric Mathematics and Physical Science at least level 4. A degree is not simply any combination of subjects, but should be carefully constructed around specific major subjects. Some subject combinations are not allowed, but even some permissible combinations are not as meaningful as others. It is very important that each student should plan his/her curriculum carefully to ensure that subject combinations are meaningful and that all the necessary pre-requisites and co-requisites are met. All students, and particularly new students, are therefore advised to discuss their subject choices with Faculty staff members.
Entry is through an approved BSc degree in which Chemistry was a major or one of the major subjects studied. Students are required to study all theory courses in Analytical, Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. Research seminars and a research project are a part of the curriculum and examinations are internally and externally assessed.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CHEMISTRY 41503
Entry is through an approved B Sc Honours degree in which Chemistry was one of the major subjects studied.
DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN CHEMISTRY 43003
Students will be expected to carry out a project that makes an original contribution to research in the field of Chemistry. The work should be written up in the form of a thesis that is assessed by one internal and two external examiners. The prerequisite for admission is normally a masters degree in Chemistry.
