Natural Sciences

BSc in Natural Sciences (Biology and Psychology)

In Year 1, the student took Biology, Chemistry and Psychology but as they did not take Introduction to Psychological Research, their degree would not be BPS accredited - also the Chemistry module didn't progress into any Year 2 Chemistry. In Year 2, they took a Level 1 Computer Science which led into some Level 2 Computer Science that they might have taken in Year 3. As they did not take a total 40 credits in Computer Science in Years 2 and 3 combined, the subject didn't appear on the degree certificate.

General disclaimer:
  • Some of the modules above may have changed their names and codes since this students took this module combination. However, the combination flavour of the modules is still possible.
  • The timetable changes each year and we only guarantee that the Joint-Honours routes have one set modules that work. However, certain module combinations in Year 1 of three subjects can work - these modules are shown at the bottom of each Joint-Honours page.
  • In some examples the student might not meet the prerequisite for a module (in which case a concession would have been given based on the student doing extra work or meeting the prequisite from another module) or the student might not meet the programme regulations in which case a concession might have been given.
