The Natural Sciences Programme
Welcome to the Natural Sciences website
The Natural Sciences degree programme allows you to combine subjects throughout the three or four years of your degree programme. Put simply, if you are a scientist and want to combine more than one subject at Durham University then you need to apply for Natural Sciences. The degree programme is full-time only and is based at the Durham city campus. Besides the broad Natural Sciences degree itself, the degree programme also includes a large number of Joint Honours degrees. The structure of Natural Sciences emphasises choice and flexibility, together with academic depth. It is a very popular degree programme and our standard offer is A*AA at A-Level or a similar level of achievement in other qualifications. Click on the postbox on the right to see the brochure.

- For 2014 entry we expect to take 206 Home and EU entrants into Natural Sciences and there will be a restriction on the number of offers made to those wanting to study Chemistry. The reason for this restriction is that only a fixed number can be accommodated within the Chemistry laboratories.
- For 2013 entry and beyond, there is a new structure for Computer Science and an integrated structure for Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences which is rolling forward.
