Since the CSUP is delivered as a blended-learning course, combining distance e-learning with Residential stays at MMU, students are recommended to purchase their own laptop in their first year (this is optional since all the students would be expected to have PC/internet access in their workplace). In most of years, there is a requirement to produce a project report which may incur moderate printing costs.
Compulsory Estimate: £4650How are these costs calculated?
There are compulsory Residential stays in each year (1 week in Yrs 1-3 4 x 2-days in Yrs 4-5). The vast majority of students will live too far away to commute, so there will be a requirement to stay in Manchester. All travel, accommodation and subsistence costs are not covered by the student fee, but there is an expectation that the employer will pay for this.
Optional Estimate: £95How are these costs calculated?
Students can choose to join the RSC at anytime it is not required but is useful. The annual charge is £19 for every year.

BSc (Hons) Chemical Science is a five-year part-time programme designed in consultation with the chemical industry sector. As this course has a strong vocational element, a course requirement is that students must be in employment in the chemical industry.
You will be taught through a combination of distance e-learning and annual residential stays at the University, with the content containing a high degree of relevance to the chemical industry. Ultimately, this full programme can lead to the award of two back-to-back qualifications: FdSc Chemical Science (normally achieved in three years, see separate course entry) and BSc (Hons) Chemical Science (two extra years of study).

Meet Darryl Tracey Lim Chuin-Yi from Malaysia
Manchester Met is a fantastic place to further your studies. I first came to the University in 2011 as an undergraduate student and then continued on to study MSc Hospitality Management. The academic staff are excellent and the tutors here are qualified and very experienced. It has been a wonderful experience for both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
The facilities here are great with a library open 24/7 during term time and online databases. Many assignments involve working with industry on projects, which has enabled me to experience what working in the hospitality industry is really like. During my time here, I have networked with people from my industry, had my dissertation poster approved for a hospitality conference and won a placement in the US. It has definitely improved my CV.
The student support I have received here has been a great help. I applied for a placement in the US and staff at the University helped me throughout the process, from advice on my applications to help writing a great CV. English language support is also available through special programmes.
Manchester is such an international city and there are many friends to make and different cuisines to try. The student life here is great and there is lots to do from volunteering to sports. In my free time, I like to explore the museums and try out different restaurants in Manchester. I also enjoy traveling to different cities in the UK.
If you are considering Manchester Met for your studies my best advice would be to just say yes. Be aware of the opportunities available and just go for it!
Meet Dalya Algarni from Saudi Arabia
Manchester Met welcomed me and other international students with great support and advice, from the support staff at the student hub to the course tutors. Throughout this course, I have gained considerable knowledge that has added to my personal experience as a student. Tutors encouraged us to learn and to reach successful outcomes, such as thinking critically and supporting our points of view. Accepting my point of view and talking freely is one of the things that raised my self-confidence.
I would definitely recommend future postgraduate students apply to study at Manchester Metropolitan University.
