MSci Natural Sciences at Durham University

[email protected]


The MSci degree offers you the chance to also take research-based study in your fourth year. There are two types of MSci degree available via the Natural Sciences route:


The MSci in Natural Sciences allows you to take modules from a range of subjects, but you would normally specialise in at least one of the following subjects in your fourth year: Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Mathematics and Physics.


The MSci Joint Honours degrees are available in the following combinations: Biology & Chemistry, Biology & Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics, Chemistry & Physics, Computer Science & Mathematics and Mathematics & Physics.


The two degrees above allows you the option of completing a replacement Year Abroad in Year 3. Note that the Year Abroad is competitive and so applicants cannot apply for these pathways through UCAS.


It is possible to transfer into the second year of an MSci degree programme from a BSc, if you have successfully completed your first year of study and if you have taken the appropriate modules.


The decision to follow a Joint Honours degree in two subjects, or a Natural Sciences degree selected from a broader range of subjects, is normally taken at the end of the first year of study. It is also possible to adjust the subjects taken at that point, subject to availability, timetabling and the student’s levels of attainment through the first year. It is also possible at that point, again subject to attainment, to move to a Single Honours degree in one of the subjects studied.
