Course Summary:
Our four year BSc Applied Chemistry course emphasises the commercial as well as industrial application of chemistry. We aim to expand your fundamental chemical knowledge, refine your professional, scientific and technical skills and to develop your personal, communication and management skills. This programme is academically the same as the BSc Chemistry, but as an applied chemist you will also spend a year on placement in industry. We cater for the needs of ‘pure’ chemists whilst providing the opportunity to explore the industrial, pharmaceutical, technological and commercial dimensions of chemistry. Business and other specialist topics are built into our courses enabling you to develop valuable management skills. You share your first year with chemical engineers, to gain a deeper insight into industrial processes. Your broad grounding in the principles of chemistry will prepare you to enter research, development or production in the chemical process industries or to undertake postgraduate research or teaching certificates. Alternatively you may pursue a career in areas as diverse as commerce, administration, accounting, banking or the civil service. Ultimately you will be equipped for a successful career in chemistry, the chemical industries or a vast range of alternative scientific, business and professional occupations such as teaching. Key course benefits: - Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry - Our placement year offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience and set your studies in the context of a working environment, designed to boost your future employment prospects - Chemistry at Aston is ranked 7th in UK for Teaching Quality in the 2017 Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide - Ranked in the top 25 for chemistry courses in the UK (Guardian League Table 2017) - 100% of Chemistry students were satisfied with the Teaching on their course in the 2017 National Student Survey.

    It’s a nice university in terms of location and area and it has some nice facilities. For example, we have recently had our dispensing suite refurbished and had two more lecture rooms refurbished.

    Although it’s not the top university in the city, it’s very well accredited and is known for top student satisfaction. The clubs/union offers something for everyone, as well as a busy nightlife and shopping facilities being just around the corner.
