About BSc Chemistry with a Preliminary Year of Study
This degree is designed for students with potential who do not have a science background. You can automatically progress from this course to our BSc or MSci Chemistry degrees.
Our Chemistry courses offer a superb grounding in the subject. In years one and two, you will study fundamental concepts in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, and applications in areas such as analytical, environmental, materials and theoretical chemistry. You will also develop your ability to design experiments and interpret results and gain key skills through our chemistry-specific communications and mathematics units.
You will get the opportunity to specialise after the first two years. BSc final-year project options include work in a research laboratory or a local school, helping to develop science resources or carrying out chemistry education research. On the MSci course, you will complete a 20-week research project with an academic member of staff in your final year.
We are one of the UK’s biggest chemistry schools and we have a superb reputation for teaching and research; over a third of our research was rated 'world-leading' in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. Our alumni have established careers with a wide range of employers, including Teach First, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte LLP and HM Revenue and Customs.
