What is science?
Science is the study of the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. Science covers a number of subjects.
Scientists investigate the challenges and possibilities of the natural and technological world, from drug discovery and public health to environmental concerns, tackling cybercrime and understanding space.
Why study science?
Scientists are extremely important to modern society. Their work creates a deeper understanding of the world around us through discoveries on topics like evolution and gravity.
Studying a science degree opens doors to a wide variety of employment opportunities from clinical science to forensic scientist, to pharmacologist and laboratory technician.
