Hello everyone,

I get an offer at Manchester for the Science Foundation Year.

I would like to know the detailed syllabus of this year (the courses, the chapters, the required textbooks, and related information). It would be really great if someone can provide me the syllabus of the foundation year. After this year, I plan on taking the bachelor of science in chemistry.

Thank you.

Thank you very much. This is really helpful. Actually, I give them a call today, and I have been told that I am going to do math diagnosis test, and there is also physical chemistry in the syllabus ! So can you give a source of your information ?

Again thank you.

The maths diagnosis test just decides whether you do OB1 and OB2 or OC1 and OC2. The latter go at a slower pace for people who haven't done maths for a while.

The information I posted is from the Foundation Studies website (you need a username and password to access it). I don't know anything about Chemistry unfortunately as I don't do any of those modules so that's all the info I can offer.
