About this course


Course option

4years

Full-time | 2019

You begin one of 14 three-subject pathways before gradually specialising in two subjects in your second and third year and a single subject in the final year. You will study core concepts of each subject alongside an appreciation of how they relate to science overall. Through subject choice and optional modules you pursue a range of topics which match your interests and aptitudes, tailoring your degree to your own strengths and career aspirations. You will enjoy world-class teaching, as our academic staff in the sciences work at the cutting-edge of research and teach in an innovative and engaging manner. You will spend most of your fourth year designing and implementing an independent research project.

Modules

Subjects which can be studied on the Natural Sciences degree are: archaeology, biological sciences, chemistry, environmental science, geography, mathematics, physics and psychology. During your first year you study equal weightings three subjects taking a combination of lectures, practicals and tutorials. As your studies focus on two subjects in the second and third year you have greater opportunity to specialise through optional modules. During your fourth year you will work with staff at the forefront of scientific research to complete a research project in one of your subject areas.
