Natural Sciences (Life and Physical Sciences)

The University of Leicester has over a decade's experience in delivering interdisciplinary Natural Sciences programmes. Our courses thrive on the University’s strong culture of interdisciplinary research: from green chemistry to synthetic biology; from sustainable development to astrobiology, drawing of expertise from the following Departments and Schools: Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Biological Sciences, Geography, Geology and the Environment and our Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology. This research focus feeds into our degrees and you will have the chance to become an active researcher from the very start of your degree. The courses provide numerous opportunities to practice confronting scientific problems in novel situations in preparation for a career in academia, industry or other science-related fields.

You will study fundamental and advanced scientific concepts from the life sciences and the physical sciences in cross-disciplinary contexts where the connections between them are emphasised and explored. In your later years you will have the opportunity to concentrate one of the following specialisms:

  • Chemical Science
  • Molecular and Cellular Science
  • Physical Science
  • Ecological and Zoological Science

Our graduates have gone into academic and industrial research and a range of employment opportunities in science communication, consultancy, management in scientific industries and teaching.
