Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science aims to attract students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and aspirations. Undergraduate provision includes:

  • modules at Level 1 for anyone interested in studying science
  • coverage across all four major science disciplines and a number of interdisciplinary areas, – analytical sciences, biology, chemistry, environmental science, geology, health sciences, and physics and astronomy. This enables students to choose a programme of study that will give them a broad-based science degree or simply study an individual module or series of modules of their choice, perhaps leading to one of our certificate qualifications
  • sufficient modules in each discipline at Level 2 and beyond for students to specialise in one particular area of science if they wish and follow a study route which leads to one of our BSc (honours) degrees or undergraduate diplomas.

We also offer a range of taught postgraduate degrees and diplomas.

Within the Faculty’s teaching aims, high priority is accorded to the maintenance and further improvement of the quality of the students’ learning experiences. Associate lecturers must therefore be able and willing to provide general learner support in addition to subject expertise, and to help students develop their understanding of scientific methodology, as well as mathematical, statistical, practical, communication and study skills as appropriate. A substantial proportion of tuition takes place by electronic means. Recommended student group sizes range from 20:1 on our taught modules to 10:1 on our Level 3 project modules.  In the taught MSc programmes, associate lecturers for the project module supervise students on a one-to-one basis.
