Natural Sciences


Find out more information about Natural Sciences

Natural sciences form the basis for applied science subjects and focus on the study of the universe and the rules of nature. Biology, chemistry and physics are among the major study areas of the discipline, but study fields such as biochemistry and geophysics are also considered natural sciences. Sub-disciplines also include earth science, astronomy, behavioural science, anthropology, geology and others.

Due to their high interdisciplinary structure, natural sciences degrees will be especially appealing to students interested in studying science, while keeping their study options open. Natural sciences graduates benefit from a broad range of general scientific knowledge, as well as skills in communication, numeracy and information technology. They will also be able to solve complex problems and make best use of personal and material resources available.

Bachelors and Masters related to natural sciences will place a strong emphasis on the practical application of theoretical knowledge and will include specialised laboratories. Some natural sciences programmes also focus on solving global and local environmental issues to contribute to a healthier population.

Graduates are well qualified for a wide variety of scientific careers such as research and development, marketing and management in biotechnology. Students can find jobs as environmental engineers, actuarial technicians, landscape architects, commercial food trainees and more.
