(Advanced Science / Arts)

When I came to uni I never expected to like chemistry; I definitely preferred physics and maths. I was surprised then when I found the first-year course so enjoyable, and most importantly for me when starting a double degree, so well-organised. I found the material interesting and with just the right amount of challenge that I quickly found myself as a chemistry major.

Beyond that first year, what has made the course so good is that it has never been confined to just the lecture theatre. The opportunity to work in a proper research lab is there for those that want to (and I definitely did).
