Overview

The BSc Applied Chemistry provides you with a broad understanding of applied chemistry, drawing on the Department of Chemistry’s emerging research strengths in new materials, clean and renewable energy, pharmaceuticals and healthcare.

The programme will train you to a high professional standard, equipping you to deal with challenges in academia and industry, and in highly competitive and interdisciplinary environments.

Our curriculum offers you the most advanced chemistry topics, ensuring what you learn is at the cutting-edge of the field. The knowledge of and hands-on experience with modern technologies make our graduates stand out in both academic institutions and industry.

The BSc Applied Chemistry is accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry in the United Kingdom. This accreditation means that upon graduation, you will have partially gained the academic requirements needed to achieve chartered status and be able to demonstrate internationally recognised standards of competency as chemists.

Why should I study applied chemistry at XJTLU?

  • Tailor your studies to your own area of interest, with a range of classical and modern chemistry modules available
  • Benefit from a low staff-to-student ratio, allowing you to participate in a wide range of practical exercises
  • Undertake an ambitious final-year project, giving you a taste of a research career and exposing you to the current research topics of the Department of Chemistry
  • Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.


Royal Society of Chemistry accreditation

The BSc Applied Chemistry programme has been accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry in the United Kingdom, one of the world’s foremost professional bodies for chemical scientists.

The accreditation means that upon graduation, BSc Applied Chemistry students will have partially gained the academic requirements needed to achieve chartered status and be able to demonstrate internationally recognised standards of competency as chemists.

The Department of Chemistry at XJTLU is the first at an independent Sino-foreign university in China to achieve this accreditation for its undergraduate degree programme.

Modules

The programme addresses both classical and modern developments in chemistry. Your final year project will give you a taste of a research career and expose you to the current research topics of the department. This hands-on experience with modern technologies and research activities will make you more competitive in establishing a career in both industry and academic institutions.

My professors have supported my aim to become a medicinal chemist, by giving me good advice about where and how to study for my further education in chemistry. Along with theoretical and practical modules, I have been exploring emerging scientific research particularly in the pharmaceutical sector.
