What will I learn?

When you combine science and arts you'll develop the critical thinking and communication skills along with specialised skills and practical knowledge in the biological, clinical, chemical, physical and mathematical sciences. You'll have the freedom to tailor your degree around your interests in your foundation first year before gaining specialist knowledge and abilities - based on your chosen majors - throughout the remainder of your studies.
