Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Gain a broad education in chemistry and the business environment in which it is used. You’ll be prepared for a career in scientific or management areas.

This course gives you the opportunity to combine your love of chemistry with an interest in business. As well as gaining a broad education in chemistry, you will study management topics taught 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 world-leading 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, such as public engagement events and work in schools.

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

Qualification Offer Further information
UCAS Tariff Not accepted
A level AAA If you are taking A level Chemistry and one other maths or science subject:

AAA in three A levels including Chemistry plus one subject from Biology, Further Mathematics, Mathematics or Physics.

If you are taking A level Chemistry and two other maths or science subjects:

AAB in three A levels including A in Chemistry plus two subjects from Biology, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics.

If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.

Alternative offers:

Most of our students will join us with three A levels, but you may have study beyond this (such as a project qualification 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 are taking A level Chemistry and one other maths or science subject:

AAB in three A levels including A in Chemistry plus one subject from Biology, Further Mathematics, Mathematics or Physics 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
grade B in a fourth A level, where your four A levels include A level Mathematics
grade M1 in Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives

If you are taking A level Chemistry and two other maths or science subjects:

ABB including A in Chemistry plus two subjects from Biology, Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics 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
grade B in a fourth A level, where your four A levels include A level Mathematics
grade M1 in a fourth principal subject, where your four principal subjects include Mathematics

If you receive an offer for this course and are studying one of these project qualifications you will be given both the typical and alternative offer. If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.

You can find out more about our alternative offers, including a complete list of qualifications we consider on our dedicated page.
