Gain a broad education in chemistry and the business environment. You’ll be prepared for a career in scientific or management areas. This course allows you to combine your love of chemistry with an interest in how business works. You’ll gain a broad education in chemistry with an understanding of the theories of chemical behaviour and how they are applied. At least a quarter of the units you’ll study will be management topics, delivered by the School of Management. You’ll develop an understanding of the social, legal and economic implications of the decisions that managers in chemical and related industries are required to make. During the course, you’ll gain an understanding of the theories of chemical behaviour and how they are applied. You will also develop skills in experimental chemistry and in designing experiments to test hypotheses. You can specialise in a particular field through optional chemistry and management units and a final year project. You’ll draw upon the expertise of academics in both the School of Management and Department of Chemistry, and could even contribute to the research being carried out. There will also be opportunities for you to put your chemistry knowledge into practice in research laboratories and other professional environments outside the University. Our chemistry degrees have the same core units in the first year giving you the flexibility to switch courses. The Master of Science (MSci) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the bachelor’s but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques.

Qualification requirements

QualificationOfferFurther information
UCAS Tariff Not accepted
A level AAA We prefer students with a range of maths- and science-based subjects, and your typical offer depends on how many of these subjects you study in your A level subjects. If you study Chemistry and at least two other maths or science subjects: AAB in three A levels including A in Chemistry and two other science or mathematics subjects. If you study Chemistry and only one other maths or science subject: AAA in three A levels including Chemistry and one other science or mathematics subject. If you study four or more subjects and could meet either set of requirements, our typical offer will normally be the lower of the two (AAB). If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement. Alternative offer: ABB or AAB Most of our students will join us with three principal subjects, but you may have study beyond this (such as a Global Perspectives course or additional study in maths) which demonstrates your individual talents that will help you with your degree. We recognise these studies through our alternative offers. Like our typical offer, the grades required by an alternative offer depend on the number of science and mathematics subjects you are studying. If you study Chemistry and at least two other maths or science subjects: ABB in three A levels including A in Chemistry and two other science or mathematics subjects plus one of: grade A in an EPQ grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate grade B in a Core Mathematics qualification grade B in AS level Mathematics or Statistics (except if you are studying an A level in that subject) grade B in a fourth principal subject, where your four principal subjects include Mathematics If you study Chemistry and only one other maths or science subject: AAB in three A levels including A in Chemistry and B in one other science or mathematics subject plus one of: grade A in an EPQ grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Challenge Certificate grade B in a Core Mathematics qualification grade B in AS level Mathematics or Statistics (except if you are studying an A level in that subject) Or alternatively, AAB in three A levels including A in Chemistry plus one of: grade B in a fourth A level, where your four A levels include Mathematics If you receive an offer for this course and are studying one of these qualifications you will be given both the typical and alternative offer. If you study four or more subjects and could meet both the AAB and ABB set of requirements, our typical alternative offer will normally be the lower of the two (ABB).
Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (first teaching from September 2016) DDD DDD in the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF) in Applied Science. You must be studying the following units as part of your BTEC qualification: Applications of Organic Chemistry, Applications of Inorganic Chemistry, Industrial Chemical Reactions. We prefer you to have also studied Practical Chemical Analysis.
Access to HE Diploma D: 36 credits M: 3 credits A pass in the Access to HE Diploma, with at least 36 credits achieved at Distinction and 3 credits achieved at Merit or above. This must include at least 12 credits in Chemistry units achieved at Distinction (including units in both Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, but excluding Biochemistry) and a further 12 credits in Mathematics, Physics or Biology units achieved at Distinction.
Scottish Higher AA AA or AB in Advanced Highers If you study Chemistry and a second science or mathematics subject: AB in two Advanced Highers including A in Chemistry and a second science or mathematics subject. If Chemistry is your only science or mathematics Advanced Higher: AA in two Advanced Highers including Chemistry. We make offers based on Advanced Highers. You will typically be expected to have completed five Scottish Highers and your grades in these will be considered as part of your application. We prefer applicants who have achieved at least AAAAB in their Highers.
Pearson BTEC Extended Diploma (QCF) D*DD D*DD in the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (QCF) in Applied Science. You must be studying the following units as part of your BTEC qualification: Chemical Laboratory Techniques, Industrial Chemical Reactions, Chemical Periodicity and its Applications, Industrial Applications of Organic Chemistry. We prefer you to have also studied: Mathematical Calculations for Science, Energy Changes Sources and Applications, and Practical Chemical Analysis.
International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme 36 points 36 points overall and 6, 6, 5 in three Higher Level subjects including 6 in Chemistry and 5 in a second science or mathematics course. We accept either HL Mathematics course and Sports, Exercise and Health Sciences as a second science or mathematics subject for this degree. We cannot accept Standard Level Chemistry for this course. If you are not studying a second science or mathematics subject at Higher Level and you are taking it at Standard Level we may be able to consider you. In this case the typical offer is 36 points with 6, 5, 5 in three Higher Level subjects including 6 in Chemistry plus 7 in the Standard Level subject. Standard Level Mathematics: Applications & Interpretations cannot be accepted as a second science or mathematics subject.
Cambridge International Pre-U Certificate - Principal D3, D3, M1 D3, D3, M1 or D3, D3, D3 We prefer students with a range of maths and science-based subjects, and your typical offer depends on how many of these subjects you study in your principal subjects.
