Third year projects
All Natural Science students undertake a group project during their third year. As our degrees cover a wide mix of subjects, the project topics show how our students can approach problems from a fresh perspective. By bringing their individual areas of expertise to their projects, our students produce exciting, unexpected results.
Project work is assessed through ways including an extensive report and presentation, examples of which are below.
