Welcome to the Faculty of Natural Sciences
Whether you’re coming from the UK or abroad or through an INTO programme, we're really looking forward to meeting you. It’s always a time of great excitement for us to be welcoming new students, whether in Autumn, Spring or Summer semester and we know that you’ll be excited about the new opportunities that university life will bring too.
We run a range of activities in your first weeks that are designed to help you to prepare and learn more about university and your course. You’ll encounter new ways of learning, meet new friends and get to know your lecturers, so please do attend these sessions as a priority – they’ll help you settle in fast and hit the ground running with your studies and your fellow students.
The Faculty of Natural Sciences offers you an excellent environment in which to explore, question, innovate and create. We pride ourselves on our teaching excellence and internationally leading research. Whatever your programme of study within the faculty you can be assured that you will be taught by experienced and dedicated staff who are committed to developing our next generation of graduates.
I hope that you are as excited as we are about your time in the Faculty of Natural Sciences and the foundation that it will lay for your future.
