It is not possible to study the entire content of two or three single-honours degree courses simultaneously. To help with your course selection each science department has created one or more coherent collections of 'Modules' called 'Pathways'.
You choose which pathway subjects you would like to do – either two or three. By following a pathway through a particular subject you are guaranteed to have the necessary pre-requisites for each subsequent year. You can follow any pathway. Please note that some pathways have special conditions. If you are unsure about any conditions, please contact the Applicant Enquiries Coordinator.
Double Weighted Pathways
Please note, due to the complexity of subject content, some of our Pathways are double weighted. This means you can only take one other Pathway with these Pathway choices. Double weighted Pathways are shown by an asterix in the table below.
At the point of application you do not have to specify which three pathways you intend to pursue in your Natural Sciences degree programme. After results day in August, you will be sent a letter by the Department requesting your three pathway choices. Your pathway choices can be further discussed at the start of October during Intro Week.
