About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2022

The HNC level 4 qualification in Applied Science: Chemistry provides an excellent grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required for progressing onto further studies, such as a BSc, or into employment within the science industries.

The programme develops a deeper understanding of chemical principles at level 4. Students will also become experienced in laboratory technician skills and have access to equipment such as infra-red and UV and HPLC flame spectroscopy.

Within the scheme, there are opportunities for students to attain a level of professional practice in the laboratory as well as independent learning through individual project work. There are also opportunities to get involved with industry through the College’s long established links with the sector.

Modules

The course content is based around the subjects of: The Fundamentals of Laboratory Techniques, Scientific Data Handling Approaches and Techniques, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and the Analysis of Scientific Data.

Assessment methods

The programme is assessed through the submission of assignments, practical work, reports, essays and an independent project. Formative feedback will support student progression in both written work and technical outcomes. Self and peer assessment in convener/critique situations is an essential element of all projects and feedback from these will enhance student achievement and progression.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
