The Natural Sciences programme is ideal if you wish to combine study in more than one area of science but retain a larger degree of flexibility than joint degrees allow. You will study modules from a minimum of two key disciplines with the opportunity to specialise as you develop your degree.
If you are enthusiastic about studying several branches of science, and want to think across traditional subject boundaries, then this could be the degree for you.
The Natural Sciences degree at UEA is the only degree where the choice of subjects studied is taken by you, the student. With the help of your personal academic advisor you will tailor your choices from across the sciences to create a unique degree that crosses conventional boundaries.
Do you want to understand not only the biological complexities of how a virus spreads through a population, but also the computational techniques necessary to predict and illustrate it? Do you want to be able to explain the causes of a tsunami, and to use mathematics to predict how the wave travels, and to understand the economics of how it impacts on vulnerable people? If the answer to these questions (or to thousands more like them) is yes then you should consider Natural Sciences.
Whatever choices you make, you will benefit from being taught in science departments where the research and teaching is considered excellent internationally. You will learn from scientists who are at the forefront of their field, who will share their latest results with you in lectures, seminars, fieldwork or practical classes. You will experience what is required of a competent scientist; from the careful thought needed to design an experiment in any science, through painstaking consideration of the results, to the sense of discovery and excitement of finding something new.
UK/EU Students: £9,000. International Students: £14,400Start date September 2015 Credits (ECTS) 180 ECTS
The first year provides a good opportunity to build on your existing knowledge in the key
areas of science that you are interested in, and possibly discover new avenues of study
available at university level.
From the second year you develop your interests into specialisms. The overall mark for the second year contributes to 40 per cent of the final degree classification.
In the final year you would undertake an individually supervised research project in your chosen discipline. This year contributes towards 60 per cent of your final degree classification.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
IELTS band : 6 TOEFL iBT® test : 78
To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advice you totake an IELTS test. More About IELTS
We welcome applications from students from all academic backgrounds. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading). Recognised English Language qualifications include:
If you do not meet the University's entry requirements, our INTO Language Learning Centre offers a range of university preparation courses to help you develop the high level of academic and English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study.
Interviews are required as part of the selection process.
We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year, believing that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry and may wish to contact the appropriate Admissions Office directly to discuss this further.
We ask our applicants to have at least two of the following subjects to A2-level or equivalent: Biology; Chemistry; Physics; Mathematics or Further Mathematics; Environmental Science or Geography or Geology; and Information and Communication Technology.
General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted.
The School's annual intake is in September of each year.
We encourage you to apply if you have alternative qualifications equivalent to our stated entry requirement. Please contact us for further information.
Students are required to have GCSE Mathematics and GCSE English Language at Grade C or above.
No work experience is required.
"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
