BSc (Honours) Natural Sciences (Chemistry)

You will need a computer with internet access to study for this qualification. For most OU qualifications a Microsoft Windows (new since 2007), Apple Mac (OS X 10.6 or later) or Linux computer should be adequate. However, some qualifications require more specific IT equipment, in which case you will need additional software to use an Apple Mac or Linux computer. A detailed technical specification for your modules will be made available when you register. Please note, technical specifications do change over time to match computer developments and the way we teach.

Professional Certificate in Chemistry free course icon

Science, Maths & Technology 

Professional Certificate in Chemistry

In studying this certificate, you'll gain a foundation in the main branches of chemistry and an appreciation of chemistry in all aspects of our lives. You'll explore synthesis of organic compounds, spectroscopic analysis, the Periodic Table and reactivity, bonding and molecular shape, thermodynamics and kinetics. Online and remote experiments, combined with a short laboratory-based residential school at our Milton Keynes campus, will build your investigative and practical skills. This certificate is particularly useful if you're required to teach chemistry up to Key Stage 4, but your background is in another science, or if you're thinking about training to be a chemistry teacher.

Science project course: frontiers in chemistry free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Science project course: frontiers in chemistry

This is a project module for the BSc (Honours) Natural Sciences. You'll undertake individual investigations within a range of defined topics: combinatorial chemistry, fuel cells, nanotechnology, biopolymers, porous materials or transactinides, metals in medicine and drug design and synthesis. You'll need access to scientific literature, probably from electronic library sources. The study materials provide a guide to planning and conducting project work; help with searching and using the literature; and writing a report, but ultimately this is a chance for you to plan and execute a piece of work for yourself.

Signals and perception: the science of the senses

This sensory neuroscience module uses fundamental concepts from biology, chemistry, physics and psychology to explain how we interact with our environment through the senses and is therefore an opportunity for you to study an interdisciplinary topic. For each of the senses, you'll investigate how sensation begins with a stimulus that is converted into an electrical impulse; how that is transmitted to the brain; and how the brain combines these messages ? to arrive at a 'perception of the stimulus'. The module is designed to be accessible to students pursuing a wide variety of degree studies.

Science: concepts and practice free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Science: concepts and practice

In this wholly online module, you'll explore key ideas that underpin the study of science disciplines at higher level. Following a week exploring scale, each subsequent week focuses on an area of a particular discipline ? biology, chemistry, earth science, environmental science and physics/astronomy. Materials and teaching are delivered online using a mix of interactive media; audio-visual, collaborative and independent activities. You'll develop practical skills throughout the module, and in two distinct practical blocks ? focusing on observation and control of variables ? where you'll choose activities suited to your interests. In the final five weeks you'll choose two subject areas to study in more detail.
