About this course

The Natural Sciences BSc draws together elements of physics, mathematics, chemistry, astrophysics, Earth sciences, life sciences, and science and technology studies. The programme enables students who wish to maintain a breadth of science subjects to design a unique degree which is suited to their personal interests.

  • The unique core stream structure provides you with module options from across the spectrum of science disciplines.
  • You may broaden your knowledge further by optional modules in non-science subjects such as languages, management studies, computing and statistics.
  • While the programme offers a high level of flexibility, the core streams offer you a structured pathway to enable specialisation.
  • All members of our teaching staff are experts in their various fields and are active in research, so you will benefit from their cutting-edge knowledge in your lectures and tutorials.
