Natural Sciences

BSc in Natural Sciences (Computer Science and Physics)

In Year 1, the student followed the MPhys Physics programme and transferred into Natural Sciences at the end of Year 1 (they had taken a single Computer Science m odule in Year 1 and if they had wished could have continued their study of Mathematics.) They then followed the Joint-Honours Computer Science and Physics degree as closely as was possible - they were not eligible for the Joint-Honours degree as they failed to satisfy the degree rules.

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.
