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.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.
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.
