“I feel like I’ve made friends from Chemistry who will stay with you your whole life. The lecturers want you to do well and if I knock on their doors, they always want to help. They won’t just give you the answers though; they’ll just guide you through so that you can work it out for yourself.”

“When I think about how far I’ve come as a person, and as a chemist, and I think about the friends that I’ve gained and the independence – chemistry will be in my life forever.”

“The lab atmosphere is really nice – it’s like the atmosphere on campus. When you can start to relate things you’re doing outside of the course, or when you do real-life applications when you’re learning, that sort of thing makes me think that this is the course for me and this is why I chose this course.”
