This unit of study offers students an integrated approach to the composition of matter, the shapes of molecules, and the physical and chemical processes that occur in chemistry. The emphasis is on the molecular basis of materials and transformations relevant to everyday experience. Many of these topics are treated in depth and the unit is designed to extend students who have demonstrated an exceptional performance at HSC chemistry. The laboratory classes also teach some standard research techniques and experimental methodology. The unit carries a credit point value of 6 and consists of approximately 80 hours of teaching. It contains some continuous assessment and concludes with an examination.

The Special Studies Program (SSP) is open to students with high ATARs and high school chemistry marks who are excited by research in the chemical sciences. If you are interested in joining the SSP program, please apply through our online form.
