About the course

The BSc (Hons) Chemistry with Education course will provide you with extensive theoretical knowledge and practical skills in chemistry. In addition, you will develop professional skills through work-based learning, ensuring you are fully equipped to meet the demands of being a teacher.

The overall aim of the course is to develop individuals with the knowledge and skills required to teach Chemistry at Secondary School level. You will study Chemistry to Honours level, and will also develop your teaching skills in years 3 and 4 by taking modules in Education.

On successful completion of the course you will have met the Standard for Provisional Registration, and thus be eligible to apply for provisional registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) and entry to the Teacher Induction Scheme as a secondary school teacher of Chemistry with Science.

The course teaches the fundamentals of chemistry as a core science and laboratory sessions develop practical and communication skills. Across the four years of the course, increasingly complex understanding of principal aspects of Chemistry – organic, inorganic, analytical and physical – is developed.

Depth of knowledge across a broad range of topics supports the teaching of senior phase courses up to Advanced Higher level.
