This course is designed to prepare you for further study or for a career in chemistry related disciplines. It's ideal if you've not quite achieved the grades you wanted or if you're a mature student who wants to get back into education.
The course is really flexible, giving you the opportunity to specialise in pharmaceutical chemistry, materials chemistry or environmental chemistry in your second year. Many of our students also go on to complete the BSc (Hons) Chemistry course after successfully completing the foundation degree qualification.
Throughout the course, you'll develop a broad knowledge base which is practical in nature, giving you the skills to apply chemical sciences in a professional working environment.
Our students really enjoy studying Chemistry with us and we were extremely proud to be voted top 10 in the UK for Student Satisfaction in Chemistry (National Student Survey 2018).
