Biology, Chemistry and Physics are the core disciplines upon which our scientific understanding and teaching are based. Physics underpins our understanding of the real world with a mathematical framework based on fundamental laws; Chemistry derives knowledge of the composition, properties and behaviour of matter and materials; while Biology investigates the living world, deriving general principles and obtaining detailed insight into the way in which units of life relate to one another. In this module, you will be introduced to the key concepts of each discipline, while recognising the inter-reliance of each in understanding the Natural World.

This is a compulsory module for students on the BSc/MSci Natural Sciences and should be taken in parallel with NSC1002 Mathematics and Computer Science: Integrative Tools for Natural Sciences.

The module requires a good A-level in mathematics, A-levels in at least two of Biology, Chemistry or Physics, (or equivalent) and natural curiosity.

Please note that all modules are subject to change, please get in touch if you have any questions about this module.
