Course Description

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.

  • Consistently regarded as one of the best chemistry departments in the UK, we offer you an excellent education with high standards of teaching.

  • You will benefit from our outstanding research profile as you are taught by lecturers who are experts in a wide range of chemistry-related fields.

  • You will have the opportunity to carry out an extensive research project in a university in mainland Europe, developing both your chemical and language skills.

  • The UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE) and the specialist language departments offer excellent modern language-learning aids such as computers, video and satellite links.

Accreditation

The Royal Society of Chemistry accreditation is a peer review process founded on the judgement of professional chemists. It provides a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate, and enhance the quality of degree programmes and demonstrates a commitment to continuous improvement.

Assessment Methods

Modules usually involve at least two methods of assessment; coursework (problem sheets, essays or poster presentations), an examination, or lab classes. Feedback, such as face-to-face marking in laboratories, is always provided. Your final-year project will be assessed through a written report, a presentation and an oral examination.
