Birmingham Chemistry has a long tradition of welcoming students from across the globe, who contribute to the strong international atmosphere that is a major feature of the School.
We offer a range of three-year BSc and four-year MSci degree courses, in which it is possible to focus on Chemistry, or combine Chemistry with other subjects. We also offer the Birmingham Foundation Academy, which is specially designed for candidates who are motivated to study chemistry at degree level but whose qualifications do not allow their direct entry on to one of our honours programmes and whose first language is not English.

How to apply
Applications for all of our courses are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Prospective students make their applications online and UCAS then forward the application on to us on your behalf. Please visit the UCAS website for more detailed information.
