Why Choose Natural Sciences?
Natural Sciences is the perfect course for students with a passion for understanding how the universe works. During the course, students will focus on three core science subjects: chemistry, physics and biology. These subjects are studied with the objective of better understanding the laws of the physical world around us, as well as developing the English language skills necessary to describe them.
To understand key scientific concepts required to explain the natural world
To gain understanding of the fundamentals of physics, biology and chemistry
To develop effective problem-solving and analytical skills
To debate and reflect on the effects of new scientific developments on society
To improve all-round confidence in using English communicatively
Time to Shine
Natural Sciences enables students to develop a better understanding of the natural world, by giving equal attention to chemistry, biology and physics throughout the course. Through this approach, students can explore new areas of science and build on their existing scientific knowledge further. We also want students to develop a newfound confidence in articulating their thoughts and findings so as part of our Time to Shine programme, students will also learn how to present scientific findings to an audience.
What You’ll Take Away
Through its interdisciplinary approach, Natural Sciences at Oxford College is a perfect first step towards future study within the sciences. Not only will students leave the course with a deeper understanding of the three core science subjects, but they will develop a range of skills transferable to a vast number of further study and career opportunities, including analytical problem solving, teamwork, and effective communication skills in written, verbal and presentational forms.
