Course Profile


The BSc Chemistry is one of our most popular courses and is our most flexible three year degree programme. It is ideally suited to those wishing to study a more broadly-based chemistry degree, as you will be able to define your own learning programme by choosing from the broad range of modules offered by the School of Chemistry.

Making a choice between an MChem or BSc course can be difficult. If you are at all unsure which course is right for you then you need not worry; you will be given advice before you begin studying with and whilst you are a student here. At UEA, transferring between the two courses is straightforward during the first two years because of the universal underlying structure of our courses. Progression is dependent on academic achievement, and it is the grades you achieve during your studies with us that determine whether you are eligible to transfer between courses, not your A-level grades.
