Course summary

If you would love to study chemistry here at Leicester, but you don’t quite have the entry requirements, this Foundation Year degree is your path to making it happen.Our integrated Science, Technology and Engineering (STEM) Foundation Year degrees are aimed at students who wish to study a STEM subject, such as Chemistry, but don't have the traditional entry requirements.The course is run on the University of Leicester campus like any other, and you will be studying alongside other students who applied for, and slightly missed out on, a place on a course similar to yours. In the first year of this course you will all be working towards passing a foundation year (year 0), which will enable automatic progression onto year 1 of any of our BSc (or MChem) Chemistry courses.By completing the STEM Foundation Year you will automatically progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.You will be taught by our expert academic staff from across a number of Schools.The course strongly emphasises the development of essential professional and personal skills, which are necessary throughout your studies and beyond.During your foundation year you will join our student community and be able to enjoy all aspects of the University of Leicester student experience. You will be able to join the Students’ Union, use our academic and leisure facilities, live in our accommodation and access all our support services.You will have a personal tutor to support you.
