Course summary

**Overview**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. With our Year Abroad programme, you’ll get to broaden your horizons and bring a new perspective to your studies by spending a year overseas. You’ll spend your third year at one of our partner universities in Europe, Australasia, the United States or Canada before returning to UEA for your final year. If you choose to spend your year abroad in Europe, you’ll also take language modules during your second year. **About This Course**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. By spending a year studying overseas, you’ll be exposed to teaching influenced by different research interests, expanding your academic horizons, while also having the opportunity to experience university life in another country. Throughout the course you’ll gain an appreciation of complex concepts from across contemporary science. You’ll experience what’s 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. 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.
