**Programme Specifications

The UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) require us to provide 'Programme Specifications' for our Degree courses. These comply with the QAA Subject Benchmark Statement for Chemistry which sets out expectations about standards of degrees in Chemistry. The statement describes what gives a Chemistry its coherence and identity, and defines what can be expected of a graduate in terms of the abilities and skills needed to develop understanding or competence in the subject.


Language Options

  • Language for science courses supplement chemistry elements of the programme for students registered on a combined degree in Chemistry with a Language for Science (F1R1, F1R2, F1R4
  • Language classes in French, German, Spanish and Italian are available for students registered on a Year-Abroad or Research Abroad course (F101,F104)

These courses are offered by the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication
