From researching elephant behaviour in Zimbabwe, to studying laser physics in Oxford or working as a metallurgist in Australia, studying Natural Sciences at Bath can open up a world of possibilities.
Natural sciences allows you to study more than one science subject. Options could include biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacology or 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, psychology or education. This is a unique perspective and is highly sought after by employers.
