On the Natural Sciences Summer School, you’ll discover aspects of life as an undergraduate, learning about the visualisation of proteins in the Life Sciences, coding to solve Physics problems and find out about the range of topics in Chemistry which our students study. You’ll work in small groups or independently, researching a topic you find exciting, to create a presentation or poster for the end of the week. Your Student Leaders will guide your research and help refine your presentation and communication skills. Our current UCL students will talk about the Natural Sciences degree programmes and life at UCL and you’ll hear about the range of careers a degree in Natural Sciences can lead to after university. We will also discuss applying to this degree programme, including what we look for in applicants and their personal statements. The UCL Natural Sciences BSc and MSci degrees enable students who want to maintain a breadth of science subjects, shape a unique degree suited to their personal interests. They also allow science subjects to be combined in a structured and coherent programme. The Natural Sciences programmes are flexible degrees drawing together two elements of physics, astrophysics, mathematics and statistics, chemistry, earth sciences, life sciences, and science and technology studies, equipping the next generation of scientists with skills to move comfortably between different environments.
