Studying Natural sciences is an ideal way to combine interests from more than one area of science. The Natural Sciences degree programmes are at the heart of the Faculty of Science. The Faculty has a powerful reputation for innovation, excellence and working across the boundaries of different academic disciplines.
The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Natural Sciences.
If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.
Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).
Tips on how to choose your modules can be found at the bottom of this page. Please contact your Academic Adviser and ensure that your modules are chosen in advance, so you’re all ready to start when you arrive at UEA!
Welcome to the School of Natural Sciences (NAT).
During your studies you will be working with colleagues from a selection of Schools in the Science Faculty, and perhaps the wider University. We are all pleased that you have chosen to study here and look forward to working with you. We will all do our best to ensure that you are both challenged and supported throughout your studies so that you are able to achieve your full potential. My colleagues and I all hope you will enjoy being a Natural Sciences student and will take advantage of all the opportunities this offers.
You will have many opportunities beyond your studies to broaden your knowledge, to practise and acquire new skills. We have an active Natural Sciences Society to which I hope you will contribute, as well as many other clubs and societies which will cater for both novel and established interests that you might have. Keep up with what the society is doing, and organising by linking to their Facebook page.
Natural Sciences also has a Twitter feed to follow and a LinkedIn group to join.
Please look at the Natural Sciences Induction Programme on the UEA website, which gives you details of what is happening on your course in Induction Week. The Induction Week has been carefully designed to help you settle in as quickly as possible and therefore it is important that you attend all of the induction events.
I wish you every success in your time at UEA and look forward to meeting you in person soon.
Dr Stephen H. Ashworth
Head of Natural Sciences
