However, it is a really interesting subject that many of us love to learn, and like it or not you are going to have to study chemistry if you're a student that is about to enter level seven in New Zealand.

There are many students who don't have a problem with studying chemistry and even go on to learn chemistry in university as they would love to work in a profession that heavily involves the use of chemistry and what they learn in secondary school. So how exactly and where exactly do we learn chemistry in New Zealand?

Within New Zealand there are plenty of options for students to learn chemistry, at secondary school which is mandatory, as well as at university if you decide to learn chemistry because you want to work in a chemistry related field and even at home with some extra help of a tutor or with the internet.

Although technically during level six students starts to learn some objectives of the chemistry curriculum, the true chemistry curriculum doesn't start until level seven.

Students are expected to use their scientific knowledge that they've acquired from their previous studies to

  • Research and begin to understand the different ways that materials and chemical processes interconnect with people and nature.
  • Perform a range of investigations to explore chemical behaviour.
  • Understand chemical concepts and patterns of chemical behaviour.

Learning and investing different chemical concepts as part of the curriculum will give students a basis for chemical studies, and can then go on to continue studying at university or if they are not fans, leave secondary school with important and useful knowledge about chemistry.

New Zealand may be a small country, however there are quality universities that you can find yourself studying at. After you've finished secondary school and if you have decided to go on and maybe find a profession that has to do with chemistry, in between that you'll have to research and study chemistry at university.
