As the central science, Chemistry is responsible for many of the most important breakthroughs in science. In taking some of the world’s most exciting ideas and discoveries and turning these into innovative processes and products, its potential to improve our everyday lives is enormous.
Study Chemistry at Birmingham and you will join one of the UK’s leading departments and have access to some of the best research facilities in the country. Throughout your time with us, you will be constantly challenged as you push forwards the boundaries of your understanding, all within a supportive learning environment. By the time you graduate, you will be ready to forge an exciting career that shapes the future of science and society.
Each year contains 120 credits of taught material, which is delivered in modules that are typically worth 10 or 20 credits.
You will take 60 credits of core chemistry courses each year, which cover the fundamental aspects of the subject. These courses include a significant practical component, which not only allows us to develop your practical skills and techniques in a range of experiments, but also to consolidate the theory you will have covered in associated lectures.
You will also take 20 credits of language modules each year, which develop both communication skills and cultural awareness. These courses are delivered by staff based in the University’s Centre for Modern Languages.
The remaining 40 credits in each year comprise modules designed to support these core courses and include optional chemistry modules, mathematics courses, project work and laboratory modules, as well as courses which focus on communications skills and employability.
This degree programme does not require you to spend time abroad. However should you wish to spend some time at a foreign university, for example to carry out a Summer research project, we can make enquiries on your behalf using the contacts, we have set up through our Chemistry with Study Abroad programme (F106).
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
