What will I learn?

Gain a wide range of skills and knowledge across different scientific disciplines. You’ll have 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 can design your own degree 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.

If you decide during the first year your interests fit better within a single science, you may be able to transfer to year two of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, pharmacology or physics after year one.

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.


Going on placement gives you the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to a year working professionally. You’ll be employed full-time in a role to match your future career ambitions, broadening your experience and transferable skills. This could give you a competitive edge when applying for graduate jobs.

Prepare for your future

By studying across a range of subjects, you’ll gain the knowledge and practical skills to tackle problems from different angles. You could go into a wide range of careers, from working in scientific and manufacturing industries or research and development, to roles in management, marketing, sales, purchasing, patenting and environmental management.

Recent employers include Deloitte, BP and the World Health Organisation. Many of our graduates also choose to go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.

We have links with some of the industry’s leading companies. Recent placement employers include Intrinsiq, CERN, EY, Wessex Water, GlaxoSmithKline and European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF).
