If you have taken at least 5 Chemistry modules in previous years, you are encouraged to do some form of independent study or dissertation through one of the following modules:

  • Independent Study (15 credits) - BIO3888B (15 credits)
  • Independent Study (30 credits) - BIO3888E (30 credits)

Other modules are chosen from:

  • Pharmacology and Medicinal Chemistry - BIO3041 (15 credits)
  • Specialist Topics for the Chemical Sciences - BIO3073 (15 credits)
  • Horizons of Biochemical Research - BIO3085 (15 credits)

to make up an overall total of 60 credits in this half of the overall Flexible Combined Honours degree programme.

More than 60 credits of chemistry/biosciences modules can be taken each year within Flexible Combined Honours.

At least 60 credits of approved chemistry modules have to be taken each year for Chemistry to form part of the degree title.

The Chemistry pathway is offered through modules within the Biosciences department. The pathway has been approved by the Royal Chemistry Society.
