Chemistry

Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science

Optimal exchange dates: Year 2: Semester 1

Planning your exchange: The key pre-requisite for Semester 1, Year 2 across both specialisations is CHEM20018 Chemistry: Reactions and Synthesis. Should students find an equivalent to this subject at the host institution they could go abroad for in Semester 1 of Year 2.

Things to consider: If going on exchange in Semester 1 of Year 2, it is recommended that students attempt to find an equivalent subject to CHEM20011 Environmental Chemistry, which is recommended for this major.

There are other electives that have been mapped and we encourage students to consider these where possible:

Mapped subjects for the Chemistry major (including Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry specialisation) include:
