Natural Sciences (with Professional Placement)

Natural sciences is multi-disciplinary. You’ll be able to study across the subjects of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacology and physics. Course aims: This is the course for you if you love studying chemistry, biology and physics at school or college and want to keep that breadth. Design your own degree to suit your interests and strengths. You’ll be able to take your existing scientific skills further, explore new areas and apply what you’ve learnt in practical and relevant ways. Employers will value your ability to bring problem-solving skills from a variety of different angles. You’ll graduate with the breadth of knowledge and practical skills to prepare you for a career in industry or for postgraduate research. If you decide during the first year your interests fit better within a single science, you may transfer to Year 2 of Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry or Physics following successful completion of a Year 1 double stream in that subject. The Master of Science (MSci) course provides you with same core sciences but in more depth than the BSc. It also gives you greater exposure to current research. Major subjects are chosen from Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Pharmacology and Physics. Environmental Science and Pharmacology can only be Major subjects on the BSc course. Minor subjects are chosen from the same list. Options are more science, Mathematics, Psychology, Management or Education units. Regardless of the major or minor you choose, you will take a final year project as compulsory unit in your final year.
