VCE Chemistry Programs at the University of Melbourne

Bookings are now open for the VCE Chemistry programs at the University of Melbourne these will run 8-9 and 11-19 June 2020.

  • Year 11 students analyse water samples for common organic contaminants and metal ions using either HPLC, AAS or UV-visible spectroscopy: click here for more information.

  • Year 12 students learn the principles and applications of organic chemistry and structural analysis and complete an analysis by collecting and combining data from Mass Spectroscopy, 1H and 13CNMR and IR Spectroscopy: click here for more information.

Both programs are designed to be complete introductions to these topics. The programs run simultaneously and we can cater for up to 50 Year 11s and 50 Year 12s at a time

The cost is $34 per student.
