I heard that London Met offer an undergraduate course in Cosmetic Science, so I looked it up and found this:
https://metranet.londonmet.ac.uk/registry/$services/$course-information/undergraduate/$course-structures/structures/singles/bsc-cosmetic-science.cfm


However, I can't find this anywhere on the UCAS website. Does this mean that they no longer offer the course?

That page looks very old fashioned, and I can't see it in the London Met course list so it might well have been discontinued. Contact the uni directly to make sure.

If it isn't on there 2014/15 prospectus, its highly likely they have discontinued the course

London Met killed off a lot of courses two or three years ago.

Furthermore, it feels like an attempt to make a chemistry degree attractive to girls, rather than being a subject in its own right.

Actually, it's just a more specific route into formulation chemistry.
DMU offer Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Sciences, but I'm unwilling to move away from London. Also, UAL offer Cosmetic Science as an integrated masters.
Lots of formulation chemists who work for GSK / Unilever etc are males who enter that sector by studying Pharmaceutical science or pure Chemistry, but these would be too difficult for me.

Convince me it wasn't an attempt to "shrink it and pink it"?

Why?
I'm predicted A-B for Chemistry, but pure Chemistry at a university level would require a lot more mathematics than I'd be able to handle, since I don't study A Level Maths.
Also, why bother with a Chemistry degree when there's unis that offer degrees specific to what I want to do?

Shrink and pink. I like it. Did you make it up?

Because they're worth it?

Quite right. Ignore us. We should know better. However, if the course is not on Ucas, it's not likely to be running. Do check with the university that they haven't given it a different name, though.

Shame. There was a GCSE English paper on how Nissan marketed the Micra to women a few years back.

You are going to struggle in London.

Does Queen Mary offer anything chemical without a lot of maths? Its chemistry school is nothing to write home about but its the best likely university. Greenwich probably has the best chemistry department in the capital after the big 3 (Imperial, Kings and UCL).

However there is a reason that course is in Leicester. The East Midlands is the centre of the UK industry and obviously Nottingham University is the University of Boots. A trip from St Pancras may be your best opinion

Thank you. I've actually considered Pharmaceutical Chemistry at QMUL since this is the most decent university I can find in London, but again, I'm not sure about the area it's located in. The requirements are ABB if I remember correctly, which is doable. UCL offer Medicinal Chemistry with AAB requirements, but this is more focused on medicines, which isn't what I'm looking for.

Could anyone think of any alternative courses that might be suitable for me, in London? I'm interested in Chemistry more than Biology, and want to go into research and development. Cosmetics is my main area of interest, but I'm aware that it'll be difficult to find a job in London.

I know someone who is just finishing this course and I think it might be what you are looking for.

http://www.arts.ac.uk/fashion/course...metic-science/

At the time she applied we thought she should have done Chemistry and then gone into cosmetic Science but she was determined not to. She seems to have had some interesting internships in fashion/events but I don't know whether she has found or is even looking for work directly related to her degree.

I've read about this on the UAL website before actually, and it does seem to be exactly what I'm looking for! I was just looking to see if any other unis offer this course but it doesn't seem like it. Also, with regards to careers, I'm not very confident either that I'll be able to find work directly related to the degree, especially if I want to stay in London.
