The two-week National Training School in Theoretical Chemistry, sponsored by EPSRC and supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry, took place in September 2016. The School provides a broad-based introduction to key concepts and techniques which underpin research in theoretical and computational chemistry.

Our year-2 cohort joined students at Warwick University for a three-day Team Working in a Research Environment course. The course, organised by Alison Rodger (Warwick) and Syma Khalid (Southampton), covered aspects of teamwork, scientific communication for a broad audience and identifying personal strengths and weaknesses. Our students were joined by the MAS CDT students from Warwick, and the diversity of scientific backgrounds added to the richness of the experience and was appreciated by all.
There was a friendly, collegiate atmosphere throughout as the students embarked on a range of practical and theoretical activities including building a wooden ‘matrix’ (which they achieved in a record time), working together to market a product for children of various age groups.
