Chemistry (with Education)

As with our standard BSc Chemistry, this course will provide you with a deep understanding of all aspects of chemistry, but it will also prepare you for a career in education. You’ll gain hands-on teaching experience with a guaranteed secondary school placement, and you’ll be able to select from a number of modules from UEA’s School of Education to further develop your understanding of teaching. You’ll also tailor your chemistry modules to suit your strengths and interests, and you’ll complete an independent research project in both education and chemistry. This degree will prepare you for further study at Master’s level, a PGCE qualification, or teacher training through routes such as school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT). However you could also move into scientific communication or professions requiring advanced analytical and numerical skills. **Course Structure** Our degree programme will develop your existing knowledge and give you a detailed understanding of chemistry across a broad range of specialisms. Throughout your three years, the modules will help you develop transferable skills in the areas of communication, team working and problem solving. Such skills are vital to professional scientists, and prized by employers. **Year 1** In your first year of study you’ll develop your scientific skills, building upon your existing knowledge. You’ll also study topics such as mathematics and physics, which will prove particularly beneficial if you have not taken A-levels in these subjects. We place a distinct emphasis on practical work in year one, encouraging you to develop important analytical and problem solving skills, which will prove invaluable throughout your degree. We’ll also encourage you to participate in extracurricular education and science communication activities, which are held across the Science Faculty. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll complete our compulsory work placement module, ‘Education in Action’. Your learning will focus on organic, inorganic and physical chemistry; developing your knowledge in these core areas and honing your practical skills. **Year 3** In your third year you’ll gain a detailed understanding of more advanced organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. You’ll choose from a diverse range of optional modules covering topics such as the theoretical, materials and biophysical aspects of chemistry, as well as education modules covering theory and practice. You’ll complete our compulsory ‘Education Research’ module, through which you’ll undertake an independent project within education. And, in chemistry, you’ll undertake a research project, which can be literature, computational or laboratory-based. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
