Natural Sciences

BSc in Computer Science and Physics

Each year, the student followed the Joint-Honours rules. In Year 1, their was an alternative choice where they could have replaced Single Maths A and B by an Linear Algebra and Calulus & Probability which requires at least an AS-level in Further Maths - this could have given some flexibility in continuing study with Mathematics beyond Year 1 had they not wanted to follow the Joint-Honours programme and wanted to include some Mathematics. Note that they could have continued their study of both subjects into Year 4.

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.
