What is Natural Sciences?

A Natural Sciences degree gives you a unique opportunity to mix scientific subjects to form your own hand-picked degree. If you are interested in more than one science subject or are interested in where traditional disciplines overlap, Natural Sciences is the choice for you.

You can choose three subjects - only two of which have to be a science - to study. As you progress into your second year, you can decide to keep studying all three or to focus on the subjects that fascinate you the most.

Our Natural Sciences degree is designed to challenge the brightest students who are prepared to apply themselves across multiple disciplines. The rewards for your effort are a huge range of career choices, and the knowledge, skills and mindset to pursue a successful career.
