Why study this course?
Our Chemistry (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) degree will provide you with a broad knowledge of chemistry as well as laboratory techniques, IT skills and practical job experience so you can graduate fully prepared to work in the world of science. This degree has a built-in foundation year that covers the key concepts of chemistry to fully prepare you for the following three years of your course.
The course is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry and provides partial exemption from the academic requirements for Chartered Chemist status.
You’ll benefit from our £30 million Science Centre. This state-of-the-art facility will allow you to work with the kind of equipment you’ll find in science laboratories.
In your final year you’ll undertake a year-long research project based on a subject you’re interested in. In addition to this you have the choice of participating in a work placement to give you practical, hands-on experience to take into your chosen science career.
Following your foundation year, you will study the same modules and content as those who study our Chemistry BSc (Hons) degree.
