Natural Sciences

BSc in Natural Sciences (Biology, Geography and Psychology)

In Year 1, the student took Biology, Geography and Psychology in equal measure. In Year 2, the rules for Psychology mean that student needs to do at least 60 credits and they needed to do less Geography as Biology requires students to do at least 40 credits. In their final year, they dropped Biology and because they had done 50% Science, they were able to tilt their final year in the direction of Geography. Note at that time it was not a requirement of the degree regulations that students take a Capstone module and in particular, this degree is not BPS accredited because they did not take Individual Differences and Abnormal Psychology (PSYC2071).

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.
