The Natural Sciences degree programmes are administered within the same framework of teaching and assessment used by the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MAPS) and the Faculty of Life Sciences (FLS) for all its degrees, resulting in the same high academic standards. The Natural Sciences programmes are flexible degrees drawing together elements of physics/astrophysics, mathematics, chemistry, Earth sciences, life sciences, maths/statistics and science and technology studies.

The Rationale behind the UCL Natural Sciences programme:

• Boundaries of traditional science subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and Physics
   have become less well defined
• Programme designed to complement single science degrees
• Response to modern demands of multidisciplinary research
• Ideal for students who wish to specialise in more than one science subject

Natural Sciences at UCL is also keen to link with multidisciplinary research Centres at UCL such as Nanotechnology, Chemical Biology, Clinical Operational Research Unit and the Institute for Origins.
