    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.

    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.

    MChem Chemistry is a highly 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

    The first two years follow a core structure. Core topics include:

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

    You also attend courses covering a range of presentational, computer, and IT skills. Finally, there is time for you to study subsidiary courses from outside Schools such as Life Sciences (Biochemistry), Earth Sciences (Geology), Geography Materials Science, Mathematics, Physics and also Languages.

    Course content for year 2
    The second year continues developing the core and extends topics from first year including:

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

    Eligibility for continuation on the MChem programme is at our discretion based on your general performance and your second year mark. If you are not eligible you will be transferred to the BSc programme.

    Course content for year 3
    In the third year of the MChem programme, you study chemistry in greater depth and breadth and select a greater number of advanced Chemistry units. You will also undertake a team based research project.

    Course content for year 4
    In the fourth and final year, you carry out an extended project associated with one of the research groups in the School of Chemistry. You will study course units related to the area of the project, also take units from other areas of Chemistry.  There is a great deal of flexibility in your choice of course units in your final year, allowing you to tailor your course to match your own interests.

    Course fees: For entry in 2009, the tuition fees are "yet to be announced" per annum for home/EU students and "yet to be announced" per annum for international students.
