"As scientific research becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, I feel that scientists who can bridge the gap between different subjects are hugely important, and a degree in Natural Sciences reflects this perfectly."
Ayesha Tandon - MSci Natural Sciences, 2018
Natural Sciences at Exeter is a unique collaboration between staff and students who work together, across conventional boundaries. We use science to address some of the key challenges of the 21st century including climate change, new and sustainable materials, and disease. The interdisciplinary design of the subject allows our students to explore and study the world through multiple scientific lenses, enabling them to identify the intrinsic links between biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer science. Our world-leading research is often at the interface of traditional subjects, such as mathematical biology, and requires creativity and fresh perspectives. Diversity, of ideas and people, is therefore at the heart of who we are and what we do.
