Course summary

**About This Course**Biology alone will not beat cancer; environmentalists alone will not mitigate global warming: scientific advances are forged through shared knowledge and collaboration. By studying Natural Sciences you’ll gain an appreciation of complex scientific concepts, and be able to approach them from more than one angle. Our radically interdisciplinary Natural Sciences programme gives you the opportunity to create your own unique degree, crossing conventional boundaries and tailoring your learning to suit your interests from across the sciences. You could study any combination of biology, chemistry, computing, environmental sciences, mathematics and physics, with knowledge from one complementing the other. On our Natural Sciences with a Placement Year course you’ll gain practical and professional experience by spending your third year of study on placement. You’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a commercial environment and acquire invaluable experience as well as developing a greater understanding of the application of your scientific interests. And we have links with leading organisations including Astra Zeneca, Aviva, the Environment Agency and GlaxoSmithKline. **Overview**Our Natural Sciences course is ideal if you wish to study more than one area of science while retaining a larger degree of flexibility than traditional joint degrees allow. You’ll study modules from a minimum of two of the main disciplines: biology, chemistry, computing, environmental sciences, mathematics and physics. And you’ll have the opportunity to study specialist topics as your degree programme develops. Whichever subjects you choose, you will be learning at the forefront of your chosen disciplines with our stimulating, research-led teaching programme. Our programme will give you an appreciation of complex concepts from across contemporary science. You’ll experience what is required of a skilled scientist: from the deliberation needed to design an experiment, including consideration of the results, to the excitement of discovering something new. And by spending your third year on an industrial placement, you’ll gain truly invaluable, hands-on experience of how this applies to a real working environment. This highly competitive degree provides you with vital knowledge of several scientific disciplines, and its flexibility allows you to direct your learning around your own interests or career goals. You’ll acquire technical skills and subject-specific knowledge as well as transferable skills desired by employers, including high levels of literacy and numeracy, data collection, collation and management, understanding and analysing complex systems, devising strategies of intervention, critical thinking, time management, organisational and analytical skills, teamwork and communication skills. In your final year you will complete a supervised research project, which can be in a combination of disciplines. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
