**This degree is professionally accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. As well as your main Imperial degree, you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the Royal College of Science (ARCS) on completion of this course.** Build on your chemistry knowledge with a paid year in industry and a challenging management programme. Chemistry at Imperial is designed to produce chemists of the highest calibre, who are capable of pursuing a career in the chemical sciences. All of our Chemistry courses are professionally accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry and cover modules in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry in all years of study. Years one and two of all of our chemistry courses follow the same core lecture module content supplemented by two ancillary modules. These modules are not always chemistry modules, and have been chosen to support specific degree programmes. In the third year of this course you will take a mixture of core and optional modules, and complete a substantial research project. You then spend a year on a paid industrial placement. You will be expected to help the Department organise your placement, however help is available. Your final year is spent in the Business School which is triple-accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. The core modules including accounting, entrepreneurship and marketing equip you with an understanding of the management of the operating environment of business organisations, and prepare you for a career in management roles. The balanced programme of formal teaching, case studies and individual and group work is aimed at developing your personal, conceptual and analytical skills, as well giving you the chance to broaden your academic experience and mix with students from other disciplines. All of our Chemistry courses include a high level of laboratory experience, designed to develop the practical, analytical and theoretical skills required to work in the sector. You will take part in a wide range of laboratory-based activities in the Department, which vary from year two depending on which course you choose. As well as traditional synthetic chemistry labs, you will also be trained in measurement science, analytical chemistry and molecular modelling, helping you gain confidence in applying a large number of different experimental techniques. You will also take part in theoretical and mathematical methods laboratories, workshops and IT laboratories. Years one and two of our Chemistry degrees follow the same core course content, supplemented by optional modules designed to match your chosen course of study. This structure offers you the opportunity to transfer between Chemistry degrees at a later stage providing you have studied the appropriate optional subjects, and as such you should apply to only one degree within the Department of Chemistry. You may need to meet a certain academic standard to be eligible for placements in industry or abroad. If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa, but our International Student Support Team are here to help advise and support you.
