Course summary

This one-year full-time course is integrated with a further three- or four-year undergraduate degree, and will equip you with the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to successfully meet the challenges of our BEng and MEng Chemical Engineering degrees. It is aimed at highly motivated students who already have A-Level Maths (or equivalent), but don’t have the UK Chemistry A-Level needed for entry onto these degrees. You will study full-time through a combination of lectures, workshops, tutorials, and independent study, with three hours of laboratory practical work each week. You can also take a route through the Engineering Foundation Year if you do not have A-Level Maths which is required for entry onto the degree.


Whatever degree course you are aiming for, you will take all the modules listed below. All modules are studied for the whole year. The coursework module integrates elements from the different disciplinary modules and is assessed by a range of approaches. Modules: GSCI0008 Fundamentals of Biology GSCI0009 Fundamentals of Chemistry GSCI0011 Laboratories and Coursework GSCI0010 Mathematics for Scientists GENG0014 Routes to Success. For more information, visit the course page.

Assessment method

You will be assessed through unseen written exams, short tests, assessed coursework in the form of laboratory log books and reports, problems and other set assignments.
