BSc (Hons), Sandwich With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Chemistry and Mathematics.
In Chemistry you'll have hands-on experience with state-of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques. In Mathematics we offer a carefully designed first year curriculum designed to help students make the transition into university study with a high level of personal support. You don't need to have Further Mathematics at A Level to study this course.
This course is for those who would like to study Chemistry and Mathematics in equal weight and gain an understanding of a scientific domain to which they can apply their knowledge of mathematics. In Mathematics, you will study core material in calculus and algebra while in subsequent years you can tailor your programme according to your own interests. For instance, you can specialise in pure or applied mathematics, or explore probability and modelling.
You'll develop a solid foundation of theory and practical skills in Chemistry, building to cover advanced concepts and contemporary issues in later years. You can tailor your studies to reflect your interests, and learn how to pursue your own research. You'll learn to use chemistry in problem solving and to present your theories and findings confidently and imaginatively to your audiences.
Mathematics graduates pursue a wide variety of careers, and options open to Combined Honours students can be especially broad. Some graduates continue to further study; others move directly into employment or professional training. Some career opportunities are actuarial training, aircraft engine design, data analyst, Formula 1 car design, NHS accounts analyst, operational research, software developer, scientific research, statistician, and teaching. The many opportunities offered by a chemistry degree at Keele will equip you to confidently pursue your chosen career. You might work in industry, research or education; you could choose to become a chemical engineer, research scientist, toxicologist, patent lawyer, analytical chemist or technical writer. Many students go onto higher study after a first degree in chemistry, allowing them to specialise in an area of interest such as analytical, forensic, synthetic or materials chemistry.
