Society has an urgent demand for scientists who can tackle complex problems by bringing together the ideas of different disciplines. This integrated Masters programme prepares you to take on the scientific challenges of future decades.

On this course, the concepts and language of multiple sciences are taught to you from the beginning. You’ll build solid foundations in three science subjects, coming to specialise in two subjects in your final year. By developing your knowledge of multiple subjects side by side, you’ll acquire a unique version of how the ideas and tools of science link together in our understanding of the natural world. The available subject options are biochemistry, biology, chemistry, environmental science, food science and nutrition, mathematics, and physics.

Within the programme structure you have the opportunity to tailor the scientific components of your degree and their individual weightings to create a course that builds you into the scientist you want to be.

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?
