Overview

The Natural Sciences programme is ideal if you wish to combine study in more than one area of science whilst retaining a larger degree of flexibility than joint degrees allow. You will study modules from a minimum of two main disciplines, with the opportunity to study specialist topics as your degree programme develops.

By studying Natural Sciences you will be able to appreciate complex concepts from across contemporary science. An example of this could be examining the biological complexities of how a virus spreads through a population, alongside the computational techniques necessary to predict and illustrate it.

You will experience what is required of a competent scientist; from the deliberation needed to design an experiment, including consideration of the results, to the excitement of discovering something new.

Course Structure

This three year course gives you an opportunity to build on your existing scientific knowledge, and possibly discover new avenues of scientific study available at university level. In the second and third year, you will have the chance to choose from a diverse range of scientific modules from science schools across the faculty; from Artificial Intelligence to Quantum Mechanics and Symmetry.
