12 Quays Part Time Level 6

Or Application Form & Reference Form to be returned to Student Services

This course, written and validated by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) covers advanced topics, typically included in the third year of a modern chemistry BSc.

The part-time course lasts 2 years. It is suitable both for day release students who are employed in an industry and those for whom part-time study is the better option.

Course Details

You will study five level 6 units over two years:

  • CH3030 Advanced Concepts in Chemistry 1
  • CH3030 Advanced Concepts in Chemistry 2
  • CH3032 Chemistry through Research and Innovation
  • CH3033 BSc (Hons) Chemistry Project
  • CH3036 Chemistry for a Sustainable Future

A single module completed in one year will require about 10 hours per week. This normally consists of between two and four hours contact time with staff in lectures, practical sessions or tutorials and the rest in private study, reading around the subject or preparing assignments.

Please note that the 'Chemistry Project' module can be work-based, accommodating those who opt to work in a laboratory while they study.

Entry Guidelines

Students with Level 5 Foundation degree in Chemistry or Level 5 Higher National Diploma in Applied Chemistry or any other equivalent qualification are eligible to apply.

Applicants who do not fulfil the above entry criteria will be considered on an individual basis, taking into account other factors.

Assessment Method

The modules are assessed through Examinations, Presentations, Essays, Short notes, Case studies etc. Coursework and practical assessments typically make up 65% of the course's assessment. The remaining 35% is attributed to a written exam.

Additional Information
