Subject

Natural sciences

Explore science from a multidisciplinary perspective to embrace new ideas, and think creatively to tackle some of the world's most pressing societal concerns. You will graduate with the advanced scientific, research and communication skills to accelerate you career in industry or pursue further study.

**Why choose this course?**

- Among the first in the UK to be accredited by The Society for Natural Sciences in recognition of outstanding quality in providing interdisciplinary scientific education

- Explore and debate multi-disciplinary scientific perspectives with peers from your cohort

- Focus on real-world problems and contribute to positive change

- Work in Keele’s state-of-the-art Central Science Laboratories

- Personalise your degree to your specific interests and career goals

Many challenges facing society today are beyond the scope of a single academic discipline or area of research. From food security and climate change to the lack of education and unemployment, global challenges require a multi-disciplinary approach whereby experts from across the sectors collaborate, think creatively and synthesise ideas to identify and implement impactful solutions.

This interdisciplinary approach is at the heart of our Natural Sciences MSci. Our applied programme encourages a way of thinking that blends scientific knowledge with an awareness of social, economic and ethical issues to address some of the world's most pressing societal concerns.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
