Chemistry is the study of materials and substances, and the transformations they undergo through interactions and transfer of energy. Chemists can use an understanding of chemical structures and processes to adapt, control and manipulate systems to meet particular economic, environmental and social needs. This includes addressing the global challenges of climate change and security of water, food and energy supplies, and designing processes to maximise the efficient use of Earth's finite resources.

Studying Chemistry provides a learner opportunity to explore key concepts, models and theories through active inquiry into phenomena and through contexts that exemplify the role of chemistry and chemists in society. The study of chemistry provides a foundation for undertaking investigations in a wide range of scientific fields and often provides the unifying link across interdisciplinary studies. Learners will become more informed citizens, able to use chemical knowledge to inform evidence-based decision-making and engage critically with contemporary scientific issues.
