Delivery method: Classroom / Online and Paper Based

Course duration: 24 Months

Entry requirements: No prior qualification needed

Award achieved: AQA A Level Chemistry

Awarding body: AQA

Chemistry explores the fundamental building blocks of life. This course will explore physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry.

You will study subjects like atomic structure, kinetics, periodicity, organic analysis and chromatography. Studying chemistry prepares you for further education, particularly if you want to work in medicine or become a scientist.

Overview / Skills

During this A-Level Chemistry course you will explore bonding, energetics, kinetics, thermodynamics, the periodic table, amino acids, proteins DNA and organic synthesis.

Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by AQA) you will have achieved an internationally recognised AQA A-Level Chemistry.
