Please note the following

  • Transfer to the Chemical Physics with Industrial Experience programme is not normally possible after the first term in the first year.
  • Due to the divergent nature of the Chemistry and Chemical Physics programmes, transfers to Chemistry are only possible during the first term of the first year.
  • Transfer to the Physics programmes is at the discretion of the Schools of Chemistry and Physics.
