About the Foundation Year
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Chemistry honours degree programme. Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
About the BSc (Hons) Chemistry degree
This new degree programme combines traditional education in chemistry with 21st century high-technology applications, in order to produce graduates suitable for immediate employment in the chemical and allied industries, or to move onto postgraduate studies.
Chemistry makes up our environment, whether we are in the countryside, surrounded by natural materials, or in a brightly lit, shiny city centre. Increasingly, we seek to adapt our surroundings to make them warmer, more comfortable or more pleasing to look at. Similarly, we try to improve ourselves with supplements or fight diseases with drugs. We communicate with each other to a degree undreamt of, even a decade ago. All of these things require the creative application of chemistry by the chemical and related industries.
