TR061 Junior Sophister

These four are of course the Chemistry Moderatorship, the Medicinal Chemistry Moderatorship, the Chemistry with Molecular Modelling Moderatorship and the Nanoscience Moderatorship. The structures, core modules, practical elements, progression, capstone research projects, and the choices available (Junior Sophister Open, Junior Sophister Trinity Elective), are listed in the handbook.

As the Chemical Sciences Moderatorships have been rapidly evolving in light of the Trinity Education project, all of the information presented here is as accurate as possible at the time of compilation of this document. However, module codes, the module content, the choice or breadth, or timing of available Core, Mandatory, Open or Optional modules and details of examinations are subject to change between this academic year and the beginning of the next when the first rising Junior Sophister students enter into the Sophister years of the Moderatorships within Chemical Sciences. We are very happy for you to be with this on this exciting journey where these four Moderatorships are now presented in a way not possible before now with Core components and Open modules in Junior Sophister and a new range of Optional modules in the Senior Sophister year.

Specifically, there are opportunities within each Moderatorship to tailor your degree through your parallel choice of Trinity Electives; by subsequent choices within the Junior Sophister year of Junior Sophister Open modules; your preference of your Senior Sophister project, and your selection from among the Senior Sophister Optional modules.  Whatever your pathway and whatever the Moderatorship ultimately chosen, each of our chemistry degrees gives you a wide range of transferable skills that will be of value in research, industry or business.

Please read the TR062 Sophister Programme and complete the online form below. Students should submit the online choice of moderatorship form by Friday 30th April 2021.
