Chemistry is a core science subject that touches almost every aspect of our daily lives and will become increasingly important in our future knowledge-based society. Chemists develop life-saving drugs, medical devices, materials and sensors that can enhance our quality of life beyond measure.
The general aim of the Foundation Degree in Chemical Sciences is to provide graduates who can progress to Stage 2 Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry degrees at QUB and elsewhere. It will also benefit both students in making an effective future contribution in the workplace and current employees who are offered the opportunity to develop their chosen career. In keeping with the QAA Subject Benchmarking Statement for Chemistry, this programme seeks to take a holistic view of the subject disciplines, and therefore encourages interdisciplinary thinking and analysis. Likewise, an integral work-based learning component is built into the course to enhance the student’s prospects for employability and effectiveness in the workplace.
Specifically, this programme aims to provide students with knowledge and understanding of scientific methods of enquiry and theoretical principles of chemical sciences, including, where appropriate, the application of those principles in an employment context.
