BSc in Natural Sciences (Computer Science and Physics)

The student starts following the MSci Joint-Honours Biology and Physics programme (could have replaced Single Maths A and B by an Linear Algebra and Calculus & Probability which requires at least an AS-level in Further Maths to give some flexibility in continuing study with Mathematics beyond Year 1.) In Year 2, they dropped Biology, major in Physics and start two new subjects choosing to continue Computer Science into Year 3.

Single Mathematics A (MATH1561)
Single Mathematics B (MATH1571)

Genetics (BIOL1111)
Year 2
Introduction to Programming (COMP1011)
Discovery Skills in Physics (PHYS1101)

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.
