    Selected entry requirements Academic entry qualification overview: Please consult our Admissions Office if you are interested in applying and do not have A-levels but are offering alternative qualifications. English language: Minimum of grade C in English Language. A level: Grades ABC including Chemistry and one other science or maths subject. AS level: Two A/S-levels are accepted in place of one A-level. Unit grade information: The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will inform the consideration of applications. Unit grades will not normally form part of offer conditions, except for Mathematics programmes. GCSE: A good range of subjects including English, Maths and Sciences with minimum grades of A-C. Key Skills qualification: The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University. International baccalaureate: 32 points overall with at least 16 at Higher Level including Chemistry plus at least one other science subject from Maths, Physics or Biology at Higher Level.

    Course description
    BSc Chemistry offers you a three-year degree programme. The first two years follow a core structure, which allows greater flexibility in the third and final year.

    Special features

    -We take good care of our students and have multiple tutors to oversee the process - from the Director of Undergraduate Studies in overall charge, Academic Tutors in all branches of the subject, and a Personal Tutor for each student.
    -BSc Chemistry is a flexible degree involving courses from the School of Chemistry and a range of outside Schools. For full details of all the courses see our undergraduate syllabus on our web site.
    -We are also proud of our innovative PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) scheme. The PASS scheme provides additional support in the area of the current week's tutorial. It is entirely voluntary and third and fourth year students help first years to tackle problems defined by the content of the current tutorial. The emphasis is on showing students how to think about the problems, how to develop problem-solving skills and how to get the most from the educational resources available.

    Course content for year 1
    Core first-year topics include:

    -Bonding in molecules
    -Organic reaction mechanisms
    -Natural product chemistry
    -s, p, and d block chemistry
    -Kinetic and quantum chemistry

    There is time for you to study subsidiary courses from outside Schools - such as Life Sciences (Biochemistry), Earth Sciences (Geology), Geography, Material Science, Mathematics, Physics and also Languages.

    Course content for year 2
    The second year continues developing the core and extends topics from first year, introducing new areas such as:

    -Molecular spectroscopy
    -Bonding and reactivity
    -Surfaces and interfaces
    -d and f block chemistry
    -Molecular symmetry
    -Metal-ligand bonding
    -Polymer science
    -Structure dermination
    -Heterocyclic chemistry

    Plus additional courses involving Biological and Computational Chemistry.

    Course content for year 3

    The final year of the BSc programme is made up of core units, advanced chemistry units including:

    -Inorganic Chemistry
    -Organic Chemistry
    -Physical Chemistry
    -Nuclear Chemistry
    -Environmental Chemistry
    -Forensic Analysis

    In addition, many courses are available from other Schools such as Life Sciences (Biochemistry), Earth Sciences, Enterprise, Physics, Management, History of Science and Mathematics. Practical work in the third year takes the form of a series of mini projects in different areas of chemistry.
