Course Overview

You’ll begin by studying two core natural science subjects (chosen from a range in the physical sciences, biosciences and geosciences) plus a supporting science subject and a bespoke, interdisciplinary module. In your final year, you could stay with that broad base or specialise more in your chosen science. You could also choose to extend your degree programme to a four year undergraduate masters (MSci Natural Sciences).
