OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
Following last night's (18th March 2020) announcement by the government of a significant change in their official guidance, all OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice, with the exception of those that can be held online. We trust that you will understand the reasons for this course of action in the current challenging circumstances.
Warwick Chemistry is a vibrant department with one of the newest undergraduate teaching laboratories, equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation. Major investment has provided outstanding infrastructure for both undergraduate study and research, including a High Field NMR and Ion Cyclotron Centre and most recently, a £24m interdisciplinary centre for Materials and Analytical Science.
The Department was ranked joint sixth in the national assessment of UK Research Excellence (Research Excellent Framework exercise: REF 2014), whilst 98% of the our research was classified as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. Furthermore, the Department’s Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) research portfolio is one of the largest in the UK.
