What I love about chemistry is the constant sense of discovery: looking at the simplest reactions on a molecular level is like glimpsing a whole new world. I am keen to learn at the cutting edge of current knowledge and to contribute to new discoveries...
Science is not just a subject taken in school, or a body of knowledge; it is a state of mind as well – always inquisitive and wondering. As a child, the world around me constantly captivated me and inspired questions, and I found delight in having my questions answered, always wanting to learn more, from fundamental particles, to atoms and molecules, to organisms, planets, and the universe...
I have great interest in questions such as "How do you convert raw materials into useful products through the application of chemistry on a large scale, or more accurately, how to create and operate facilities relating to the manufacture of commodities essential for modern everyday life, in a safe efficient and environmentally friendly manner?" Questions such as these were triggered at a younger age by issues such as the origins of plastics, and how they are extracted, and produced...
I was told I couldn’t have the opening paragraph I had originally written, so to begin I’ll to describe the scientific processes in my own words as this is what will underlie my degree and hopefully my foreseeable future...
I first became interested in Chemistry at GCSE level as this was the first time that I had studied the sciences separately. I found it a subject that I understood and have continued to find thoroughly enjoyable and achieve very well in...
The most fascinating aspect of chemistry is the knowledge that everything around us, the whole universe in fact, comprises a grand total of some 92 natural elements, to some degree or another. I have always been fascinated by the elements, and the relation each element has to all the others in what is known as the Periodic Table...
Since studying Chemistry and Design & Technology at A level, my desire to develop my knowledge of chemistry, incorporating the use of computers with technology, has increased. I wish to study in greater depth the potential interrelations of these subjects and look forward to the unique creative possibilities that a greater knowledge and understanding of them will bring...
I am currently studying A-Levels at Runshaw College, in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics and General Studies, and studied Music to AS level. The workload for 6 AS levels has been quite high, and my ability to cope with this busy schedule shows I am able to cope well under pressure...
All aspects of chemistry and the every-changing needs of society particularly in the environmental field fascinate me. In particular, I most enjoy experimenting and the challenge of understanding chemisty and it's surrounding issues...
What I love about chemistry is the constant sense of discovery: looking at the simplest reactions on a molecular level is like glimpsing a whole new world. I am keen to learn at the cutting edge of current knowledge and to contribute to new discoveries...
By having this opportunity to apply to university, I hope to specialise in the fields of chemistry and computing, as I currently study these subjects at 'A' level. I have enjoyed the aspect of creating systems in I...
Science has always interested me, and chemistry in particular is my favourite subject. I know I would like to take it further, hopefully as a career. Molecular mechanisms and what they can tell us about our world fascinate me and a university course represents a unique opportunity to further pursue my main interest I am enjoying the breadth and depth of my A-Level studies and relish the freedom to work more independently...
What I love about chemistry is the constant sense of discovery: looking at the simplest reactions on a molecular level is like glimpsing a whole new world. I am keen to learn at the cutting edge of current knowledge and to contribute to new discoveries...
From the smallest molecule to the most important issues of the modern world, chemistry is fundamental. The burgeoning world energy crisis, for example, will only be solved with the help of Chemistry, and the possibility to be involved in this is an ambition of mine...
Few aspects of life fall outside the scope of chemistry and this is what fascinates me about this dynamic and fundamental science subject. From a young age I have enjoyed and excelled in mathematics which reflects my logical and enquiring mind...
Having been raised by a paramedic and a pharmaceutical rep, I think my interest in Science was probably inevitable. It's a discipline that I've been exposed to all my life, and a natural thirst for knowledge drives me forward through it...
Nowadays, science and technology play a vital role in people's lives. They have become a dominant factor in the development of society. Therefore, many countries are striving to diversify their economies through the development and application of new and advanced technologies like the ones that operate on nanoscale...
Chemistry appeals to my practical and analytical nature; the part of me that starts by asking: "How?" and "Why?" and doesn't give up until I have the answers. My love of Chemistry has led me to take part in various events such as the Salters' Festival of Chemistry, where my analytical Chemistry and practical skills were tested and my team earned 3rd place in "The University Challenge"...
From the race to find a vaccine for the H1N1 virus to the almost daily reports of breakthroughs in the field of cancer research, science has always fascinated me.On a more personal note, my interest has largely stemmed from school, work experiences, and science in the news...
During a concert, people can find me more often at the console, operating unfamiliar software on computer, rather than playing with my band on stage. I'm not studying in this field, but I'm a keyboard player equipped with knowledge of computer music...
My curiosity for Biochemistry started when my sister first developed the symptoms of sickle cell anaemia. She had to have immediate treatment in the form of drugs such as morphine and codeine, as she was in great pain...
My passion for science became apparent when I had a 'light bulb' moment during my time at college. Throughout school it wasn't really clear which career path I should take as I have an aptitude for most subjects creative as well as the scientific aspects of the curriculum...
Chemistry is all around us. From the very clothes on our back to the products we use every day, chemistry has been involved in their development. As it is a multi-faceted and ever-evolving subject, providing endless fascination, there are constantly new challenges and questions which must be answered...
Chemistry is in my opinion the most important of the sciences today. As a science of matter and its properties, Chemistry can be applied to almost any situation from forensics through medicine to environmental sustainability...
Throughout my life I have always had a strong desire to learn all about the world around me, and have therefore always been drawn to scientific subjects. In my opinion, chemistry is by far the most broad and fascinating subject of the sciences...
The realisation I wanted to study Chemistry at degree level came with my growing appreciation of its contribution and significance in shaping modern society, coupled with an increasing interest in the subject as my knowledge and understanding have developed...
I have become attracted to Pharmacy as it combines Maths and Science together and shows how these subjects affect lives every day in a positive way. A Pharmacists role is very vital to ensure the right medicines are supplied in an effective way hence it will allow me to work with a range of patients to achieve a lifelong career as a Pharmacist...
Chemistry explores the properties of all matter and energy in our universe, which eventually leads to breakthroughs that benefit mankind, ranging from how to prevent food from decomposing to understanding what chemicals can help or harm you...
