Natural Sciences are at the heart of our Faculty of Science, which has a powerful reputation for innovation, excellence and interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Our students and researchers cross the boundaries of academic disciplines including physics, chemistry, maths, computing sciences, biology and earth sciences. Our flexible programmes allow students to shape their degree according to their interests. The Faculty of Science is home to leading research in fields as diverse as climate change and the exploration of nanowires, placing our students at the cutting edge of their field of study. And through the Norwich Research Park, we have links to prestigious research institutes including the Quadram Institute, Earlham Institute, the Sainsbury Laboratory, and the John Innes Centre.
