Course summary

Natural Sciences enables students to combine science subject areas, known as "streams", reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of high-quality, internationally leading research undertaken at UCL. The first three years of the MSci follow the structure of our BSc programme. In the fourth year, you will deepen and extend your knowledge of one stream by undertaking a major research project as well as specialist taught study.

Your learning

A variety of teaching methods are employed, including lecture classes, practical sessions such as laboratory or field work (dependent on stream choice), and small-group tutorials. You will also be expected to spend a substantial amount of time on coursework and private study.

Assessment

Assessment is primarily through end-of-year examinations for lecture-based modules, whereas practical work is continuously assessed. Coursework is important and must be passed to allow progression from one year to the next.

Careers

The programme provides an all-round scientific education in its own right. On completion of your degree, you will have cultivated transferable skills and the ability to solve problems in a quantitative way and to see science in a modern context.

You could choose to specialise in a defined, but usually interdisciplinary, science field and proceed to study for a wide range of possible postgraduate degree and doctoral programmes. Alternatively, you will be equipped to pursue many career options, for example, as a scientific journalist, in science teaching, as a management consultant or in finance and banking.
