The Advanced Chemistry tutorial aims to prepare students for Oxbridge interviews by walking through selected topics that might come up in such situations, including general, organic and physical chemistry. The tutorial will also help students understand the basics of theoretical discription of organic molecules’ orbitals, molecule structure determination methods, physical chemistry basics of kinetics and thermodynamics of reactions, understanding organic reaction’s mechanism as well as chemical reactions of biological important molecules. The tutorial will be conducted in an interactive, discussion-based teaching format allowing students to develop verbal reasoning and analytic thinking skills. The course is aimed at students interested in applying to chemistry, chemical engineering, material science and biochemistry.
