Full-time | 2020

You will study biology, chemistry and mathematics. This will provide you with the best possible background to enter the first year of your chosen degree programme. Students benefit from a wide range of teaching and learning styles, from traditional seminars, practicals and lab activities, lectures and tutorials to multimedia and internet-based systems. All teaching is carried out on University Park Campus by the same academic staff who teach on the main degree programmes; this helps to ensure the high standards that you would expect from The University of Nottingham. All students receive tutorial support and international students also have the opportunity to improve their written and spoken English skills at the University's Centre for Language Education (CELE).

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?
