Programme Structure

Typical course content

The programme of study is divided into modules. Each module is assigned a number of credit points (ECTS = European Credit Transfer Scheme or CATS Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme) that relates to the hours of formal teaching plus the recommended time for private study (1ECTS = 20 hours of notional study, 1 CATS = 10 hours of notional study). In each year you will take certain core and/or compulsory modules and a selection of approved option modules that make up an academic load of 60 ECTS/120 CATS.. The modules are graded introductory/ fundamental, FHEQ Level 4 (1) intermediate, FHEQ Level 5 (2) advanced, FHEQ Level 6 (3), and Masters, FHEQ Level 7 (4): the number in brackets indicates the Year of Study in which the module is normally taken.

To help you see Chemistry in a broader context you will study at least 30 ECTS (60 CATS) of subjects that are academically and/or professionally related to Chemistry in the first two years. A feature of the programme is the wide range of modules available for this purpose.

In part 3 of this programme you will complete core modules accounting for 37.5 ECTS (75 CATS) including a research project and 22.5 ECTS (45 CATS) of option modules.

In part 4 of this programme you will complete 52.5 ECTS (105 CATS) of compulsory Chemistry consisting of a placement project accounting for 45 ECTS (90 CATS),a distance learning module accounting for 3.75 ECTS (7.5 CATS) and accounting for 3.75 ECTS (7.5 CATS) and a 7.5 ECTS (15 CATS) option module. We work closely with our collaborators in the external placement scheme to ensure that the same standards of safety, supervision and learning opportunities offered in Southampton are available to all our students. For those who do not succeed in finding a placement there is the possibility to transfer to the MChem Chemistry (F103) degree completed in Southampton.

Detailed module descriptions including the breakdown of coursework and examination elements for each module are available online at



There are written examinations at the end of each semester to test your knowledge and understanding of material presented in the lectures and workshops. The practical work is continuously assessed primarily through written reports. Project work is assessed by dissertation and oral examination together with a report on your relevant skills from your supervisor. A written literature review related to the project is also assessed.

Coursework exercises based on the lecture material are set each week and feedback is provided promptly. In some cases coursework marks are used in calculating your overall mark for the particular module of study. However in most cases coursework is simply to give you an indication of your progress.

The research project and placement project will be assessed via a variety of means including review of your laboratory notebook, your assessments of the risks and hazards of your work, written reports, oral presentations, the production of a dissertation, and an oral examination.

Please note: As a research-led University, we undertake a continuous review of our programmes to ensure quality enhancement and to manage our resources.

Career Opportunities

Employability is about more than just getting a job. We believe in helping our students gain the necessary experience for a future career, along with the skills to identify opportunities and make the most of them.

It is reassuring to know that Chemistry degrees are third only behind Medicine and Dentistry as the degree which offers the highest financial return over the term of the graduate's career, but the rewards of a BSc Chemistry degree lie at a deeper personal level and not just in terms of financial return.

During your years here you will have the opportunity to broaden your options by meeting employers, getting involved in volunteering activities, work placements and much more.

A significant proportion of our graduates decide to go into research by taking a PhD qualification, most of them staying in Southampton. But careers in industry and commerce are available even in the toughest economic times. There are also research and teaching opportunities and the options to branch out into other fields such as medicine, pharmaceuticals, even finance, and the law and science journalism. This is because chemistry gives you the confidence to take on so many varied challenges in life. With a Chemistry degree from the University of Southampton your career path will be limited only by the level of your commitment and determination.
