Natural Sciences BSc Hons
Natural Sciences is a challenging degree that allows you to study across all of the scientific disciplines. Our pathways let you customize your degree to suit your interests and career aspirations.
If you are interested in more than one scientific subject, our degree allows you to combine up to three different subjects throughout the program. You can keep your interests open or choose to specialize as you progress. Either way, our Natural Sciences degree is designed to challenge the brightest students who are highly motivated and prepared to apply themselves across multiple boundaries. You can choose pathways from ten subject areas that can be combined together to create a purpose-built degree program. The subject areas are:
- Biological Sciences
- Environmental and Earth Sciences
- Medical School
Additionally, each pathway within these ten subjects includes a wide selection of modules to choose from. This breadth of possibilities makes it difficult to summarise what the three-year program will look like, but the experience will be unique and tailored to your needs and goals.
In the first year, all students begin with three pathways. You must choose two science pathways, and a third that can either be another science topic or you can select from elsewhere across the University, including a range of humanities and social sciences. You will be taught by academic staff who are leaders in their field, gaining a comprehensive understanding of your chosen subjects. You will also develop important skills and technical knowledge specific to each discipline, as well as interdisciplinary skills, such as data handling, analysis, and evaluation, plus laboratory, IT and specialist software skills.
At the end of the first year, you will also have the opportunity to choose whether or not to continue with three subjects or to just focus on two sciences, to suit your goals and ambitions.
In the second year, your study will begin to become more focused and modules will be more specialized. You will continue to develop your skills from the first year and you will have the opportunity to utilize and practice the knowledge and experience you have gained so far. In addition, many of the modules will allow you to progress your project management, research, and professional skills, as well as further enhancing your technical ability.
During the final year, you will delve deeper into the topics that interested you previously and much of what you explore will be guided by what you studied in the second year. This year, you will firmly cement your learning by applying your skills and experience to a major research project or dissertation. Depending on your chosen pathway, you may also have the opportunity to undertake an industry placement, further developing your professional skills and giving you valuable experience in preparation for your career.
- MSci Natural Sciences
In addition to our BSc degree, we offer a four-year MSci Natural Sciences program, which allows you to decide if you want to graduate after three years with a BSc or complete your MSci study with a fourth year. This additional year includes advanced modules and a major research project, all of which prepare you for a career in research and development.
