Natural sciences


Short courses for the public

Courses in the natural sciences include biology, physics, astronomy and earth science, with some overlap into the medical and environmental sciences. Courses might be hands-on or philosophical, and might address topics as diverse as climate change, particle physics, animal behaviour, the universe or the brain. 

Many of our courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification.
