This four-year programme offers an additional year on top of the Chemistry with a European Language BSc, which you will spend abroad at a European university (we currently have links with institutions in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden) undertaking an advanced chemical research project.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
This programme is offered either as a three-year BSc or as a four-year MSci. The first two years of study are identical, so you can defer which to opt for until the end of your second year. We advise you to select the four-year MSci programme initially as this keeps more options open.
The chemistry content directly follows that of the single-subject Chemistry programme in the first three years. You will cover the full range of chemistry core components, together with optional modules in chemistry and other options from outside the department.
Around 25% of your time will be centred around CLIE and the specialist language departments, providing a continuous progression of language and related modules. The language component is taught in small groups with common levels of fluency ranging from complete beginners to experts.
You will spend your entire final year at a university in mainland Europe, in a country whose language you are studying, carrying out an extensive research project. Close links have been developed with a number of European universities and the consortium currently encompasses Lyon, Bordeaux, Dresden, Dortmund, Parma, Santiago de Compostela, Uppsala and Bologna.
