Science (F12)

This course offers an opportunity to examine some of contemporary science's most pressing issues and to develop a wide range of skills associated with Master's-level study. Students can choose any of the current modules within the postgraduate science programme, which means that they can tailor their degree to suit personal interests. Our modules include areas such as earth science, medicinal chemistry, medical physics and science and society. Most modules are taught, but there is also a project module, enabling students to undertake a substantial piece of independent research. Students can also include some options from other disciplines.

Entry requirements
