Natural Sciences

Natural Sciences

Natural Sciences allows you to design your degree to suit your career aspirations and interests and maintain a breadth of scientific subjects. You'll study multiple sciences and explore the links between them, using an interdisciplinary approach.

Subject combinations

You’ll study a combination of three subjects of your choice in your first year, and eventually come to specialise in two of them. You cannot choose both Environmental Science and Food Science and Nutrition, and Mathematics must be chosen if you choose Physics.

Student | Natural Sciences MNatSc
"My subjects complement each other very well, so I feel like I'm just doing a course in all the little things that interest me. It is very interesting to see the different approaches each science has to similar problems."

Exceptional student experience

You’ll join a friendly, supportive and diverse community of students and researchers who come from all over the world. You’ll be guided through your course by your personal tutor who’ll provide academic and pastoral support. Our student support team in the School helps with anything from academic advice to timetabling and project submission enquiries.
