Natural Sciences

BSc in Natural Sciences (Computer Science, Earth Sciences and Mathematics)

In Year 1, the student took Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics which was the Joint-Honours MSci Chemistry and Physics path. In Year 2, they decided to only follow Mathematics through (which required them to take Analysis I to give maximum breadth in Mathematics) and pick up Computer Science and Earth Sciences which were both followed through into Years 2 and 3.

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.
