Course description

You begin one of 14 three-subject pathways gradually narrowing your studies to specialise in two subjects in your second and third year. During your studies you draw together core concepts of each subject alongside an appreciation of how they relate to science overall culminating in an interdisciplinary project in your final year. 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 across all subjects, as our academic staff in the sciences work at the cutting-edge of research and teach in an innovative and engaging manner. We strongly believe in the value of putting theoretical understanding into practice whether this is by running modelling scenarios in a computer lab, analysing samples in one of the fully-equipped laboratories or conducting research in the field.
