Dear Members snd Fellows,

I have been very interested reading recent editions of ‘Chemistry World’ and letters from older Members’ and Fellows’ of their qualification route via the RIC exams, by which means I studied myself. 

A sprightly 75 year old, I decided 2 years ago during the pandemic to apply to do a self funded PhD on the history of chemical education in Britain between 1945 and 1990. I was accepted by the University of York History Dept on a 6 year part time research programme and am looking for volunteers who have studied by this route to ask them a few questions about their career outcomes, whether they preferred it to a conventional full time degree course, and whether this route disadvantaged them over the conventional study route. Of course, I would send anybody interested a very short questionnaire and all answers would be anonymised according to the University’s research ethics committee. 

If anybody is willing to participate could they please email me at York rns510@york.ac.uk

Kind regards,

Robert N Slinn, MPhil. CChem. MRSC (Cheshire,UK)
