About this program

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry is designed to prepare students for careers as professional chemists, but also serves as a foundation for careers in fields such as biology and medicine. The curriculum begins with a fundamental introduction to inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, then adds more specialized courses such as analytical, instrumental, and biological chemistry. Students gain laboratory experience in most courses and dedicated undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in one of the many ongoing research projects conducted by faculty.

Admission requirements

Secondary school certificates are awarded either by ministries of education or by private schools and institutions. AUS recognizes certificates awarded by ministries of education. However, some countries award two levels of secondary school certificates. In this case, the university recognizes the higher certificate.

The university accepts certificates awarded by private secondary schools that are recognized by their host country. The university also accepts certificates awarded by recognized qualification authorities, international boards and national boards.

The UAE Ministry of Education requires enrolled students to obtain a certificate of equivalency for their secondary education certificate. To meet this condition, please refer to Certificate of Equivalency to check if your secondary education certificate requires equivalency and the process of obtaining it.

Following is a list of some common certificates and the corresponding minimum levels of performance required for accepting an application to AUS. These certificates and levels of achievement serve as guidelines only for admission to AUS and may change depending on the education system or school. Moreover, they may differ from other institutions or the standards that are generally accepted in an applicant's native country. The university may consider other types of secondary school certificates.

Admission Requirements

Formal admission to the program follows AUS’ admission requirements. Students transferring into the program must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and permission of the Head of the Department of Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Sciences.
