    These courses involve training in the use and presentation of material, in particular scientific and technical, in the target foreign language (French, German or Spanish) in written and oral forms, in a clear and effective manner and for a range of purposes and audiences. The language courses also comprise an introduction to the theory and practice of translation, with a focus on the language for science, as well as further studies in the history, politics, science and technology of the countries concerned. The curriculum also gives an opportunity to conduct a research project and attend taught courses at an approved educational institution in the respective European country. In the fourth year, the courses contain modules on the use of computational tools and packages, and in particular the internet as a language and translation aid. These courses aim to produce first-degree graduates who are well equipped to pursue careers both in chemical sciences and, more broadly, in industry and in the public sector (particularly in multinational companies and international institutions). They aim to provide a broad and balanced training in laboratory and research skills and in language and language-related studies, with the emphasis on science and technology, and a broad education in the fundamental aspects of chemistry and of the French/German/Spanish language and related studies, including an introduction to the theory and practice of translation, with a focus on the language of science.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Candidates should normally offer three A levels at A grade: chemistry, mathematics and one other (not general studies).
    We will also consider candidates with equivalent qualifications including:
     International Baccalaureate, for which we require chemistry HL at grade 7, mathematics HL at grade 6 and at least 38 points overall.
     Scottish Advanced Highers, which we consider equivalent to English/Welsh A levels.
    Specifically for these Chemistry with French, German, or Spanish for Science courses at least a B grade in the relevant language at AS level is required. A-level proficiency is preferred.
    For all courses, passes are required in English, mathematics and physics or combined science at GCSE, typically grade B or better (grade B for English).
