Undergraduate courses starting in 2022
From researching elephant behaviour in Zimbabwe, to studying laser physics in Oxford or a working as a metallurgist in Australia, studying Natural Sciences at Bath can open up a world of possibilities.
With Natural Sciences you can choose to study subjects from biology, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, pharmacology and physics. You can stay on a broad course or become more specialised and the combination of disciplines means you’ll gain a wide range of skills to be able to approach scientific problems from multiple angles.
You can adjust your level of specialisation as your career plans develop or even broaden your course further by taking non-science subjects such as management or education. This is a unique perspective and is highly sought after by employers.
As a Natural Sciences student at Bath, you'll get to:
- Play to your strengths or take on new challenges by building your own portfolio of units to study.
- Gain extra experience and boost your employability by applying for an optional year long work placement or study year abroad, supported by our specialist teams.
- Be involved in our high-level research, with access to staff from many different departments.
