Natural Sciences (with Year Abroad) - University of Bath

Gain a wide range of skills and intellectual experience in core science subjects. You'll have the flexibility to shape your degree to your career aspirations. This is the course for you if you love studying natural sciences (chemistry, biology, physics) at school or college and want to maintain your breadth of study. You can 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 two of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacology or physics following successful completion of a year one double stream in that subject. Subject combinations and units Major subjects are chosen from biology, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, pharmacology and physics. 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 a compulsory unit in your final year. Studying a maths stream is required to support the study of physics but optional if you want to use your maths to support the study of the life sciences. You can design your perfect course before you enrol using our online course selection tool. Here you'll find the full range of subject combinations and units available. If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MSci Natural Sciences course.
