Prospective applicants to Natural Sciences
Thank you for considering applying to the Natural Sciences degree programme.
The key characteristics of the Natural Sciences degree at Durham are choice, flexibility and depth. The Natural Sciences degree programme has a wide choice of subjects and there is also choice between modules within subjects. It is also a flexible degree programme and with most subjects you can delay choosing your subjects until you get to Durham and you can also change the shape of your degree at the end of the first year. You might, for instance, change between a B.Sc. or an M.Sci. degree or between a Joint Honours or a more broad Natural Sciences degree or even transfer to a single honours subject at the end of the first year. There are no special modules for Natural Sciences students and they study the same modules as single honours students so that by the end of the degree they have sufficient depth to take one or two capstone modules which are student driven and involve independent thought..
