Course summary

Gain the benefits of studying across different scientific disciplines with the flexibility to shape your degree to your career aspirations. This is the course for you if you love science and want to study more than one science subject at university. You will choose your own pathway to suit your interests and strengths. You’ll be able to take your existing scientific skills further, explore new areas and apply what you’ve learnt in practical and relevant ways. Employers will value your ability to bring problem-solving skills from a variety of different angles. You’ll graduate with the breadth of knowledge and practical skills to prepare you for a career in industry or for postgraduate research. If you decide your interests fit better within a single science, you may be able to transfer to biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacology or physics after year one. Pathways When you start your course, you can shape your degree to your interests by choosing a combination of two subjects based on your previous qualifications. The pathway will be a combination of two of the following subjects: Chemistry Physics Biology or Biochemistry Pharmacology Environmental Science Your two main subjects will be complemented by other subjects, including maths, management, psychology and education. You will follow your own path, developing lab skills and an understanding of the interdisciplinary relationship between the core sciences.
