Chemistry allows you to learn more about the structure of the world around you through experiments and find out about the chemical reactions that we encounter every day, whether it be in breathing, baking or driving a car.




It is through Chemistry that we are able to understand and examine the world around us. Chemistry bridges the gap between biology and physics, forming the basis for medicine, designer plastics and even the stars themselves. You will master all three types of chemistry; inorganic, physical and organic chemistry with lots of hands on and practical work. Chemistry is essential for lots of science and health based courses at uni and highly desirable for many other degree choices. Exploring the chemical reactions we encounter every day and combining this into a full study programme whilst experiencing the workplace and communicating with employers and universities will set you on the right path to an exciting career.

A number of specifications will be changing and prospectus entries are based on information we have to date. This means that course content may be subject to change.

How will it be delivered?

You will complete exams at the end of the 2 year course whilst also completing practical endorsement throughout.

Entry requirements

5 GCSEs at grade 4-9 (A*-C) including English, plus Maths + 2 Science GCSEs at  6 (B)
