This new extended course is perfect if you want to study for a degree in Chemistry but you don't have the standard qualifications.
First we prepare you for your degree during your Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree. Chemistry is one of the fastest-growing and most fascinating areas of human knowledge. You'll be taught by - and also get the chance to assist - brilliant scientists who are involved in groundbreaking research and new discoveries.
Increasingly, chemists are playing a crucial role in genetic engineering and molecular bioengineering, as well as other areas of physiology and medicine. Studying chemistry offers many employment pathways. As a UEL student you could choose to extend your degree by a year and get some hands-on experience in industry. This industrial research year would give you the practical skills that employers seek, giving you a competitive edge upon graduation. Upon completion of the BSc Chemistry you could choose to study for a PGCE in Secondary Chemistry with us.

When they say East, they mean pretty far east! The campus and accommodation are located right on the Thames in Beckton, and traveling into Central via the DLR offers a nice scenic route into London. The teaching was great, too – my tutors really cared, and were devoted to the local area which was great in my first year when I wasn’t too sure about living in London.
