    Description

    Recent landmark developments in biology, such as mapping of the human genome, have led to a resurgence of interest in biological chemistry – the determination of chemical properties of biological molecules, development of methods for studying them, and their chemical synthesis. These subjects are closely related to the multidisciplinary science of chemical biology, which draws from both chemistry and biology in its attempt to explain biological phenomena in molecular detail. Medicinal chemistry is a closely related subject in which molecules are designed to interact with biological processes in order to alleviate particular diseases. At UEA we provide four undergraduate courses designed to equip chemistry students with a wide range of techniques and knowledge in these areas, including: drug design, chemical synthesis, protein chemistry, bioinformatics, genetics and spectroscopy. All of these subjects build on areas of research strength within the University, and involve collaboration between staff in the School of Chemistry, the School of Biological Sciences, the Biomedical Research Centre on campus and the Norwich Research Park which includes the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. To facilitate this collaboration some teaching and research staff have joint positions between departments.
    The MChem Biological and Medicinal Chemistry with a Year in North America offers you the option of spending a year abroad. Going to a university in another country will allow you to experience other cultures and by studying in other chemistry departments, you will broaden your academic and personal horizons.
    We now have over 30 years experience of offering degrees with a year abroad and it has proved very popular with UEA students. Most students find the experience rewarding and enjoyable. The school also hosts a number of exchange students each year enjoying their study in Norwich.
    To take a year abroad, students must maintain a good standard of academic performance during the first two years of the degree programme. In placing you at your overseas university we take into account your field of interest and do our best to place you at the university of your choice. The costs involved to you include transport to and from your overseas destination and living costs, including medical insurance.
    We have a number of reciprocal exchange arrangements in the United States of America and Canada. We are always reviewing the universities we have exchanges with. Those currently involved in the exchange programme are the Universities of British Columbia (Vancouver) and Calgary (Alberta) in Canada
    and the universities of California, Illinois, Massachusetts and Colorado in the USA.
    Students on a North American exchange programme will be expected to pay 50% of their annual tuition fee to UEA during their year abroad and we will pay the North American university.

    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.

    Students for whom English is a Foreign language

    We welcome applications from students from all academic backgrounds. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading). Recognised English Language qualifications include:

    • IELTS: 6. overall (minimum 5.5 in any component)
    • TOEFL: Internet-based score of 78 overall (minimum 20 in Speaking component, 17 in Writing and Listening components and 18 in Reading components.
    • PTE: 55 overall (minimum 51 in any component).

    If you do not meet the University's entry requirements, our INTO Language Learning Centre offers a range of university preparation courses to help you develop the high level of academic and English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study.

    Interviews

    The majority of candidates will not be called for an interview. However, for some students an interview will be requested. These are normally quite informal and generally cover topics such as your current studies, reasons for choosing the course and your personal interests and extra-curricular activities.

    Gap Year

    We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year, believing that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry and may wish to contact the appropriate Admissions Office directly to discuss this further.

    Special Entry Requirements

    We ask all our applicants to have A2-level or equivalent Chemistry and A2 in a second science subject from Physics, Mathematics and Biology.
    Applicants with Access or BTEC qualifications who receive an offer will also be asked to complete a chemistry test at the University in Summer 2013. Information concerning the content of the chemistry test will be made available to such applicants.
    General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted.

    Intakes

    The School's annual intake is in September of each year.
