Environmental Chemistry (CU023)Environmental Chemistry covers the important link between environmental studies and modern chemistry practices. This Graduate Certificate introduces students to essential concepts in environmental chemistry and provides essential knowledge and understanding of chemistry in the environment and the influence chemistry has on the environment- whether it be through natural occurrences or man made. Students will undertake laboratory-based detection of pollution (learning qualitative methods) such as extraction, precipitation and distillation which are standard for all environmental chemistry laboratory workplaces. They will also develop an understanding of the influence that chemistry practices have on the climate and how to detect these chemical changes. This course will provide students with skills and relevant knowledge for employment in government environmental agencies, analytical chemistry service companies, the fertiliser industry, the food and drink industry, mining, petrochemical and paper companies, organic fine chemical industry, the pharmaceuticals industry, polymers, petrochemical companies.

Applicability of the Student Rules, policies and procedures
3.(1) The Student Rules apply to students in this course.
Academic Conduct Essentials, Communication and Research Skills And Indigenous Studies Essentials module
4.(1) Except as stated in (2), a student who enrols in an undergraduare degree course of the University for the first time irrespective of whether they have previously been enrolled in another course of the University, must undertake the Academic Conduct Essentials module (the ACE module), Communication and Research Skills (the CARS module) and Indigenous Studies Essentials (the ISE module) in the teaching period in which they are first enrolled.
(2) A student must successfully complete the ACE module within the first teaching period of their enrolment. Failure to complete the module within this timeframe will result in the student's unit results from this teaching period being withheld. These results will continue to be withheld until students avail themselves of a subsequent opportunity to achieve a passing grade in the ACE module. In the event that students complete units in subsequent teaching periods without completing the ACE module, these results will similarly be withheld. Students will not be permitted to submit late review or appeal applications regarding results which have been withheld for this reason and which they were unable to access in the normally permitted review period.
