Undergraduate study

The Department of Chemistry has a reputation for providing extensive high quality support to our students, ranked 1st in the UK across all seven measures for satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2015, including teaching, academic support and learning resources.

Lecturers and your academic tutor

Our academic and research staff are nationally and internationally recognised as experts in their chosen field but at the same time, they are approachable and provide excellent pastoral care through our personal tutoring system.

Every student is assigned a member of academic staff as their personal tutor throughout their studies. You will meet with your tutor once a week in small group tutorials during your first year.

Our approachable teaching staff operate an open-door policy. If you have further questions to ask you lecturers, you can always ask them during or after a lecture, or, if the lecturer is not in, email them to make an appointment.

You will also be able to get further help and guidance in tutorials with your Academic Tutor.

Mathematics Learning Support Centre (MLSC)

Mathematics is an integral part of all sciences and in your studies you may well encounter mathematics that is new and challenging to you. Loughborough's award-winning Mathematics Learning Support Centre (MLSC) gives you access to learning resources, study areas and mathematics drop-in surgeries. The MLSC provides mathematical assistance to the entire University, and is staffed five days a week in the teaching year. It offers an extensive range of online support, video tutorials, formulae leaflets and diagnostic tests to help you identify areas of weakness.
