Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
You will study modules from the wide range available in the Faculty of Science. The flexibility of these degrees means that you can choose to specialise, or maintain a broad range of interests if you prefer. In your final year you will complete a supervised research project, which can be in a combination of disciplines. If you take the four-year integrated Master’s option, you will be able to study at least two subjects to Master’s level, including chemistry, biology, mathematics, computing, physics and environmental sciences.
In Year 1, you will be encouraged to study a wide range of modules from the six disciplines, to broaden your interests and discover subjects you have not yet had the chance to study. In Year 2, you may maintain this wide study, or you may begin to specialise, catering to your growing strengths. Options range from Genetics to Physics of Music, from Ocean Circulation to Programming. Year 3 is similarly flexible in choice, offering modules such as Cancer Biology, Cryptography, Algorithms for Bioinformatics, and Climate Systems. You will also undertake a final-year natural sciences research project. In Year 4, you will study at least two subjects at master’s level and complete a master’s level natural sciences project.
