This thesis reports the need for, and charts the subsequent development of, a new Level-1 (First Year) chemistry course at a Scottish University for those students who have less than Standard Entry Qualifications and/or little intention of studying chemistry beyond this stage. The course is put into context in terms of both current (and proposed) curricular and examination arrangements for senior school studies, and in terms of other science courses at the University of Glasgow. Possible implications of this course for both its home institution and tertiary education in general are discussed.
