Our Online GCSE Chemistry Course is the international version or IGCSE. This Course provides basic knowledge and understanding of the unifying patterns and themes of chemistry.

In studying this course you will develop a logical approach to problem solving and you will learn how chemistry affects the world. You will also learn scientific methods which will allow you to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them.

The course aims to develop an understanding of the principles of chemistry and then builds on this knowledge looking at the chemistry of the elements, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and chemistry in industry.

Our Online GCSE Chemistry Course enables students to:

  • Learn about the unifying patterns and themes of chemistry
  • Acquire knowledge and understanding of chemical facts, concepts and principles
  • Appreciate the practical nature of chemistry, developing experimental and investigative skills based on correct and safe laboratory techniques
  • Appreciate the importance of accurate experimental work and reporting as scientific methods
  • Develop a logical approach to problem solving in a wider context
  • Understand the widespread importance of chemistry and how materials are used in the world
  • Evaluate, in terms of their chemical knowledge and understanding, the benefits and drawbacks of real-life applications of science, including their everyday, industrial and environmental aspects
  • Select, organise and present information clearly and logically, using appropriate scientific terms and conventions
  • Prepare for more advanced courses in chemistry and for other courses which require them to have a knowledge of chemistry.

Toristo asked:

I'm in my 40s and last did chemistry when I was 14-16. I need a basic understanding for my job. will this be ok or should I do something more basic?


Hi Toristo It may be ok for you it but if you found it to advanced for you, you have a 14 day cooling off period to cancel.

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
