Course and subject materials

First year students

ChemCAL Online is a web deliverable collection of interactive animations, questions and information developed for students studying first-year chemistry.

If you have a specific first-year, study-related issue, please go to the Student Enquiries Counter at the First Year Laboratories (Chemistry building) or contact the First Year Coordinator, Dr Sonia Horvat.
