iA Level Chemistry (International A Level)

Your Course at a Glance 

  • Study essential topics, from bonding to energetics 
  • Learn at a pace that suits you 
  • Online learning 
  • Achieve a recognised qualification 
  • Valid alternative to A Levels 
  • Exam not included 

About Your Course 

Studying Chemistry can lead to many diverse and exciting careers, and if you are keen to embark on a career path in this subject, then you will need a range of qualifications. If you’re an international student or a UK-based learner looking to achieve a recognised A Level, then we have the solution. 

iA Levels are recognised qualifications that were designed for students living overseas but are also available to students in the UK, and with learndirect you can study for one. We deliver the iA Level Chemistry course online, so you can study from the comfort of your own home. 

The course is suited for any individual who wants to go on to study Chemistry or a related subject at university or embark on a career in the field of science, healthcare, or medicine. In truth, many careers request science-based qualifications, so you have a wide array of options. 

During your studies, you will cover a wealth of topics, including structure and bonding, molar calculations, energetics, and equilibria. You will also explore group chemistry, organic chemistry, and you’ll gain a solid understanding of transition metals and associated experimental skills. 

The online iA Level course in Chemistry is designed to get you comfortable with the various topics mentioned, and how they relate to each other. By developing your ability and understanding of scientific methods, you will be able to apply these skills to further study or the working world. 

Getting Started 

You will be given instant access to all of the course materials you need to achieve your iA Level qualification in Chemistry when you enrol. Everything you need will be available via our industry-leading learning platform. 

By studying with learndirect, you will have the benefit of studying in your own time and in your own environment. This is because the iA Level Chemistry course is delivered entirely online, so you have full control over when and where you study. 

This course is perfectly suited to students hoping to strengthen their academic portfolio and embark on a career related to the study of Chemistry.
