Natural Sciences (Placement Year) - Lancaster University

Natural Sciences is a challenging degree that allows you to study across all of the scientific disciplines. Our pathways let you customise your degree to suit your interests and career aspirations. A paid placement enables you to experience twelve months working in the type of organisation that you might aspire to join when you graduate. If you are interested in more than one scientific subject, our degree allows you to combine up to three different subjects throughout the programme. You can keep your interests open or choose to specialise as you progress. Either way, our Natural Sciences degree is designed to challenge the brightest students who are highly motivated and prepared to apply themselves across multiple boundaries. You can choose pathways from ten subject areas that can be combined together to create a purpose built degree programme. Each pathway within these ten subjects includes a wide selection of modules to choose from. This breadth of possibilities makes it difficult to summarise what the three year programme will look like, but the experience will be unique and tailored to your needs and goals. In the first year, all students begin with three pathways. You must choose two science pathways, and a third that can either be another science topic or you can select from elsewhere across the University, including a range of humanities and social sciences. You will be taught by academic staff who are leaders in their field, gaining a comprehensive understanding of your chosen subjects.
