    -About Joint Honours in Science

    This degree is part of the Joint Honours in Science programme.

    Your topics are closely linked to our research expertise, meaning you study at the cutting edge of the discipline.

    By studying two subjects, you develop a broad range of expertise and a set of skills that spans two specialist areas, equipping you for a range of careers.

    You select from the same range of topics as Single Honours students and achieve the same high academic standard, but you cover fewer topics in each subject.

    Mastering two subjects together means you are well-prepared for the multidisciplinary challenges of the real-world, developing your skills that employers value, such as:

    • time management
    • organisation
    • self-motivation

    You also receive careers support as part of your degree, including:
