The Science and Engineering Foundation Programme (Chemistry) at Queen Mary University of London is one of the longest established and most highly-regarded foundation programmes in the UK which combines a foundation year with a university degree in an integrated four-year (BSc) or 5-year (MSci) programme. The foundation year of this programme is designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to undertake undergraduate degrees in the fields of science and engineering. The SEFP is open to both home and international students. The SEFP (Chemistry) prepares students for entry to the first year of BSc/MSci degree programmes in The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences. The programme is taught entirely at the Mile End campus by university staff. Foundation students have access to all Queen Mary's facilities and are full-time students of the University.
Below is the course structure for your foundation year. The structure and modules of the rest of your degree depend on which programme you progress onto.

5 stars. I think it is the best university in terms of its location, style of teaching and the societies. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. The university itself has many facilities for its students. There are alot of shops, buses, train stations/dlr and restaurants around the university.
