Foundation

Entry requirements for Chemistry and Chemistry at The University of Manchester

Required subjects for Chemistry with an Integrated Foundation Year BSc Hons at The University of Manchester
Students are accepted from a wide range of educational backgrounds and all applications are considered on their individual merits. Decisions are based on the application as a whole - including the qualifications, the personal statement, and the referee's comments. The following must therefore be viewed only as general guide. Our entry requirements vary depending on the subjects being taken at A-level. Typically, we would be looking for: BBC, where a student has three relevant subjects BBB, where a student has two relevant subjects ABB, where a student has one relevant subject The subjects considered to be relevant are Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, and Biology. If you are unsure whether you would be considered with your qualifications/predictions, we would encourage you to contact us before making an application. In all cases we only offer places to applicants if we are convinced that they have the academic potential and the high level of motivation that is needed to be successful on the Integrated Foundation Year and on their chosen degree programme. To help us make our decision, applicants may be asked to attend an Academic Assessment. Practical skills are a crucial part of science education and therefore there will be a requirement to pass the practical element of any science A-level taken. Where applicants are applying for science and related degrees, this is likely to be made explicit in the offers you will receive.

Very difficult course, many, many hours in lectures, workshops and labs as well as necessary reading, recommended reading, problem sheets, coursework, exam prep and consolidation information. You will realistically need to spend 40+ hours every week from the first week till your last exam. But you will learn SO much and won't realise it till what used to be a giant textbook of things going right over your head you notice it's actually a bit oversimplified read more

I’m doing a year in industry. You have to attend lectures to get a good grade. The tutors are really helpful and lecturers are really clear. Couldn’t recommend this uni more. We also have high tech equipment and a whole building to ourselves read more

Just started 2nd Year. Asked a fairly simple question at school's education office to which the staff were rude and snappy. Labs are different to 1st year (seems a little less rushed). 1st experiment completed with no issues at all, but my lab partner and I got different grades (30% diff.) even though we conducted everything exactly same. They also accused me of not attending when clearly I had been. Hate this place even on the start of semester 1. Apparently i was marked down for not attending a 'viva voce' after finishing the experiment even though i have proof of attending. And they still deducted my grade by 20% even though i have evidence to the contrary. This is just the 1st week. Mixed feelings i'm afraid. read more

Very difficult course as expected, however I find the lecturers tend to assume more knowledge of the students than we actually know from A-level. read more

So far so good. Very nice, personable and intelligent lecturers. Right level for me and everyone seems to be on the same page. First unit is introductory chemistry which is to bring everyone up to speed but is definitely also challenging everyone. The maths unit at the moment is very very basic but will get progressively worse. read more
