About this course


Course option

4years

Full-time with time abroad | 2019

Our Natural Sciences course is ideal if you wish to study more than one area of science while retaining a larger degree of flexibility than traditional joint degrees allow. You’ll study modules from a minimum of two of the main disciplines: Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Physics. And you’ll have the opportunity to study specialist topics as your degree programme develops. Whichever subjects you choose, you will be learning at the forefront of your chosen disciplines with our stimulating, research-led teaching programme.

By spending a year studying overseas, you’ll also be exposed to teaching influenced by different research interests, expanding your academic horizons, while also giving you the opportunity to experience university life in another country.

Throughout the course you’ll gain an appreciation of complex concepts from across contemporary science. You’ll experience what’s 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.

This highly competitive degree provides you with vital knowledge of several scientific disciplines and the flexibility of the degree allows you to direct your learning around your own interests or career goals.

You’ll acquire technical skills and subject-specific knowledge as well as transferable skills desired by employers including high levels of literacy and numeracy, data collection, collation and management, understanding and analysing complex systems, devising strategies of intervention, critical thinking, time management, organisational and analytical skills, teamwork and communication skills.

In your final year you will complete a supervised research project, which can be in a combination of disciplines.

**Course Structure**
This four-year course is made up of optional modules from across the Faculty of Science. It will give you the opportunity to develop your existing scientific knowledge, while discovering new avenues of scientific study.

In your second and final years you’ll have the chance to choose from a diverse range of modules from science schools across the faculty; from topics covering artificial intelligence to quantum mechanics and symmetry.

You’ll spend your third year studying at your assigned university overseas, before returning to complete your final year at UEA, when you will undertake a substantial research project that will reflect your own scientific interests.

Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
