Course description

Are you interested in the world around you? Would you like to know more about how to develop fuels of the future? Have you ever wondered why different dyes are different colours? How do we know what stars are made of? How we can make polymers strong enough to withstand bullets or weak enough to dissolve in our mouths?Chemistry is the science of the future and by studying chemistry you will not only answer these questions and many more, but also develop excellent analytical and problem solving skills. These will make you an asset not only to employers in the chemical industry, but also in professions such as law and accountancy.This course offers an exciting and varied course for those who are interested in understanding the science behind many topical issues such as global warming, developing new fuels and medicines. Chemistry is a very attractive subject to many employers and Universities view people with A Level chemistry as having proven themselves to be highly literate, numerate, and capable of understanding complex ideas and developing technical practical skills. The development of our economy depends to some extent on our chemistry experts, and there is currently serious shortage of good chemists in academia and industry. The world needs more chemists to help solve many current issues!
