Chemistry with a Foundation Year

The Foundation Year of our innovative course will arm you with the skills you’ll need to progress onto our Chemistry degree. Designed to fill gaps in your knowledge, it will prepare you for life as a Chemistry undergraduate. You’ll cover core modules in chemistry and mathematics, as well as biology or physics, depending on your interests. Complete the year successfully and you’ll be accepted onto our three-year Chemistry degree programme. Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, it will give you a solid grounding in all aspects of chemistry. In years two and three you’ll gain advanced knowledge of chemistry and develop your practical laboratory skills. Then in your final year you’ll tailor your study to specialise in the areas that reflect your interests and career aspirations, and you’ll undertake an independent research project, too. If you possess an inherent curiosity about the world around you and you’re fascinated by the way chemicals interact, this course is an ideal choice. It will give you a real understanding of chemistry’s impact on every aspect of our lives, from our health and wellbeing to our economy. And it will give the opportunity to use your imagination to take your thinking to extremes, and then apply it. After the Foundation Year, you could also elect to move onto our Masters course. Making a choice between an MChem or BSc course can be difficult. If you are at all unsure which course is right for you then you need not worry: you will be given advice before you begin studying and whilst you’re a student here. At UEA, transferring between the two courses is straightforward during the first two years of the BSc because of the common structure of our courses. **Course Structure** This Foundation Year enables you to develop A-Level-equivalent knowledge of chemistry before you commence our full degree. Throughout your degree, our 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. During your Foundation Year you’ll study mandatory modules in chemistry and mathematics, and an extra module in either biology or physics. You’ll be assigned an adviser from the School of Chemistry, who will guide you in your course choices and ensure you’re progressing towards your degree course of choice. You’ll gain credits for each of your Foundation Year modules, based on a mixture of coursework and examination results. Obtain sufficient credits and you’ll be able to choose between completing the BSc Chemistry, joining one of our specialist chemistry degree programmes, or transferring into a Natural Science course. For the years of study beyond the Foundation Year, please see the course pages specific to those degree programmes. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
