The study of chemistry is driven by the desire to explain the behaviour of the materials around us. You will study in our specialist laboratories and develop a greater understanding of the general principles of chemistry, and of a discipline that will remain at the forefront of scientific development.

You will study an array of practical and theoretical modules. These modules include Development of Practical Skills, Foundations in Chemistry, Period Table and Energy, Core Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry Transition Elements, and Organic Chemistry and Analysis.

You will develop skills in processing data as well as wider mathematical and numeracy skills. In addition, you will learn how to handle hazardous materials and scientific equipment safely.

There will be an increased push towards exams as the preferred form of assessment. This course may involve a mix of assignments and examinations.
