BANGOR UNIVERSITY

Chemistry with European Experience

BSc (Hons)  |  Placement Year:   No

Chemistry is a careers-orientated degree that opens up opportunities in high-technology industries and research, including pharmaceutical design, advanced materials, biochemical study and environmental protection. The skills you will acquire on this course are widely recognised and a course will also open up career paths in areas as varied as computing, teaching, accountancy and marketing.

CHEMISTRY WITH EUROPEAN EXPERIENCE

This course allows you to gain a strong qualification in chemistry while experiencing learning and working practices in another country. This will be advantageous to future employment, particularly with multinational companies. Language modules are available in year 1 to help you prepare for the placement in the third year. We have links with universities in 8 countries and you will have input into the location of your placement. You may choose to spend 6 months of the placement with a European industrial organisation. Throughout your time abroad we will monitor your progress and enjoyment and you will be supervised by an eminent chemist in the host university. At the end of the year you write a report on your project work and return to Bangor.

(Please note: courses with Industrial Experience, European Experience or International Experience are subject to suitable academic progress and industrial availability)

This course is accredited for partially satisfying the requirements for Chartered Chemist (CChem) by the Royal Society of Chemistry
