The Natural Sciences (Life and Physical Sciences) degrees delivered at University of Leicester offer a pioneering approach to Natural Sciences – truly integrated, research-led courses. The modules are multidisciplinary in content and are taught through a research-based learning approach.
In addition to lectures, class teaching takes many forms: seminars, workshops, laboratory practicals and small group tutorials, all designed to support your individual development as a scientist. Your lecturers will be leading researchers from the Department of Chemistry, the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and the School of Biological Sciences.
Your development as a researcher culminates in your third year project, a substantial piece of individual research under the guidance of an academic researcher. In the Interdisciplinary Research Journal module, you will participate in a weekly discussion of the current research literature and contribute short papers to our own Journal of Interdisciplinary Science Topics.
