Our BSc Natural Sciences programme uniquely places scientific research at its core, with the first two years designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge required to undertake a real research project in one of the University’s research groups.

We will explore the scientific concepts required to explain the natural world; from the properties of novel nano-materials such as graphene, to the richness of the living world, and to complex dynamic systems such as the Earth’s climate.

You will develop an appreciation of scientific methodology and of how scientific advances are made in the 21st century. You will have opportunities to interact with leading researchers in student-led seminars and workshops, to undertake multidisciplinary group projects.

Hosted by the Colleges of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and Life and Environmental Sciences, this interdisciplinary degree ensures that you build solid foundations in the fundamentals of physical, biological and mathematical sciences. In addition it provides flexibility for you to specialise in areas of specific interest as the programme progresses.

The innovative design of the programme, which exposes you to contemporary science, is uniquely inspired and underpinned by some of the exciting and world leading interdisciplinary research being carried out at the University of Exeter:
•climate change and sustainable futures
•systems biology
•functional materials
•extrasolar planets

In the third year of the programme you will have the opportunity to join a research group associated with these themes to undertake a real research project and contribute to cutting-edge science.

Our Natural Sciences programme will allow you to take full advantage of the growing demand in research organisations, industry and business for graduates who are able to work in the multidisciplinary scientific environments of the future.

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF):

We've received this information from the Department for Education, via Ucas. This is how the university as a whole has been rated for its quality of teaching: gold silver or bronze. Note, not all universities have taken part in the TEF.

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?
