Course Summary:
Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. It’s entirely unique. As well as giving you a solid, practical, laboratory-based foundation in all the traditional elements of physical, inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry, a strong emphasis is placed on the sustainable modern practices that have revolutionised chemicals manufacture and given rise to the term ‘Green Chemistry.’ Graduates from this course will be better prepared than most to understand the new environmentally-friendly systems and processes the chemical industry is adopting - making you much more employable than most, too. Our courses are underpinned by skills modules that not only allow you to develop your subject-specific skills but also focus on developing transferable skills, increasing your employability. On graduating from University with a degree in Chemistry, the possibilities are almost endless. Careers in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food and drink industries, in chemical research and development, are all obvious career paths and our graduates are highly sought after, but other possible careers include nanotechnology, environmental science, forensic science, biotechnology and teaching. And because so many of the skills you’ll learn are transferable, we have graduates working in accountancy and finance, law and even publishing.

Preston’s such a lovely student city – there’s something on each night and the prices are amazing, it’s really geared toward students. Warehouse and The Ship Inn saw the most of my nights out in town. It’s not really a bustling metropolis, but less distractions = more work done! And if you’re wanting a huge night, Liverpool’s about half an hour on the train and is amazing. My course is great, with fascinating, empathetic teachers who really support and encourage us, and the facilities are top notch. The Student Union is also incredibly supportive, and they always have time for us.
