Natural Sciences with a Year in Industry

Our Natural Sciences course is ideal if you wish to study more than one area of science while retaining a larger degree of flexibility than traditional joint degrees allow. You’ll study modules from a minimum of two of the main disciplines: Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Physics. And you’ll have the opportunity to study specialist topics as your degree programme develops. Whichever subjects you choose, you will be learning at the forefront of your chosen disciplines with our stimulating, research-led teaching programme. Our programme will give you an appreciation of complex concepts from across contemporary science. You’ll experience what is required of a competent scientist; from the deliberation needed to design an experiment, including consideration of the results, to the excitement of discovering something new. And by spending your third year on an industrial placement, you’ll gain truly invaluable, hands-on experience of how this applies to a real working environment This highly competitive degree provides you with vital knowledge of several scientific disciplines and the flexibility of the degree allows you to direct your learning around your own interests or career goals. You’ll acquire technical skills and subject-specific knowledge as well as transferable skills desired by employers, including high levels of literacy and numeracy, data collection, collation and management, understanding and analysing complex systems, devising strategies of intervention, critical thinking, time management, organisational and analytical skills, teamwork and communication skills. In your final year you will complete a supervised research project, which can be in a combination of disciplines. **Course Structure** This four-year course is made up of optional modules from across the Faculty of Science. It will give you the opportunity to develop your existing scientific knowledge, while discovering new avenues of scientific study. In your second and final years you’ll have the chance to choose from a diverse range of modules from science schools across the faculty; from topics covering artificial intelligence to quantum mechanics and symmetry. You’ll spend nine to 14 months on industrial placement in your third year. You will be responsible for securing the placement, but we have well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond and can help you to identify and compete for appropriate industrial opportunities. Throughout your placement, you’ll maintain close contact with your UEA academic advisor and you’ll be supported by an industrial supervisor. You’ll keep a diary to ensure that you’re fulfilling your learning objectives. And the year will be assessed through a written report and a presentation. You’ll return to UEA for your final year of study, when you will undertake a substantial research project that will reflect your own scientific interests. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
