Course Introduction

**Why study this course?**

This is a four-year degree course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). It's the perfect route into university if you can't meet the necessary entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard undergraduate degree. You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.

More than an introduction to the fundamentals of chemistry, this degree provides intensive basic training that is designed to give you the core laboratory, IT and performance skills to succeed in your chosen career.

**More about this course**

With access to 280 workstations and specialist labs, you’ll get the chance to explore electrochemical analysis, gas and liquid chromatography, infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometry and many other modern techniques used in the industry today.

Your first year will cover the fundamentals of physical, inorganic and organic chemistry to prepare you for the study of forensic, pharmaceutical, medical and analytical science. As the course progresses, you’ll have the chance to explore the practical and technical aspects of chemistry at a more in-depth level as well as having the opportunity to specialise in areas that interest you such as forensic chemistry or bioanalytical science.

In your final year, you’ll undertake a year-long research project on a topic of your choosing within the chemistry sector. You’ll also have the option to undertake an on-the-job placement as part of your degree, giving you valuable hands-on experience and exposure to the industry.
