Chemistry at University of Bath - UCAS

Course summary

Develop practical and theoretical skills across all areas of chemistry, ready to tackle major challenges in a range of careers. From addressing climate change, to developing new pharmaceuticals or tackling food security, chemistry is vital in modern day society. This course has the broadest range of subjects of all our chemistry courses. In the first two years, you’ll study an introduction to all areas of chemistry, gaining the practical and theoretical skills needed to design experiments and test hypotheses. This includes understanding the theories of chemical behaviour and how they're applied. We will use relevant examples to illustrate the application of chemistry in our everyday lives. You’ll draw upon the expertise of academics in the Department and could even contribute to the world-leading research being carried out. Flexible course You can specialise in a particular field through optional units, cutting edge research topics, and a choice of project-based units. All of our chemistry degrees start with the same core units, so you'll have the flexibility to switch Chemistry courses after the first year. BSc or MChem This is a BSc course - the MChem Chemistry degree provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the 3 year BSc but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques, including a major research project in the final year. Alternatively, you can opt for a BSc pathway with professional placement or study abroad.
