In your foundation year, you study chemistry and mathematics and take part in practical classes. On successful completion of your foundation year, you will have reached a standard above A level and so be fully equipped to tackle any of the BSc or MChem degree courses.

Chemistry at Kent is a distinctive program and includes a set of ‘chemistry in context’ modules where you apply your knowledge to specific case studies. For example, in our first-year Disasters module, you choose a chemical disaster and use your understanding of chemical phenomena to formulate a disaster management plan.

In the first year of the BSc, your modules introduce you to the broad base of knowledge on which chemistry is founded. In your second year, you further develop your knowledge of organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry and improve your practical laboratory skills.

In your final year, alongside compulsory modules, you can choose to take a module focusing on DNA analysis or fires and explosions. You also complete research projects in computational chemistry, solid-state chemistry, or synthetic (organic) chemistry.
