Combine in-class theory with hands-on experiments in the lab to get the experience you need for success. Learn the basics of using chemical equipment to measure physical and chemical properties. Working in the laboratory while you study chemistry fundamentals will ensure you’ll be ready for success in further education as you work towards your degree in chemistry, medicine, dentistry, engineering, nutrition, pharmacy and much, much more.

Basic chemical principles are vital in all areas of science and in many fields you might not imagine. For example, chemistry is vital to fine arts – from paints and pigments to restoration. Understanding how chemicals are structured, operate independently, and interact together will take you a long way in your chosen career.
