Stream combinations

We currently offer 31 unique combinations of streams.  Students can select from a range of stream pairings, providing the entry requirements for the individual streams are satisfied. The permitted combinations of streams are shown below. A combination of two streams from the same subject area is not permitted in the Natural Sciences degree programme. There may be some timetable constraints with a few streams, these will be discussed during induction week.
