Program Description

Chemistry is the essential science. It impacts everything in our lives, from the perfect cup of tea to powering space-shuttles. Our extended chemistry degree looks at all branches of the discipline, including organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry and analytical chemistry. You'll also develop the transferable skills that will appeal to a broad range of employers.

This extended degree starts with a foundation year before you progress to the standard three-year course. It is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry, which means first-year students get free membership and graduates can apply for associate membership. You'll also benefit from our connections with industry, including regular guest speakers.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250
