Description If you’re curious about the world we live in and enjoy delving into a wide range of scientific topics, the DipHE in Natural Sciences is for you. You’ll extend your understanding of familiar subjects and discover new ones – while developing essential skills such as critical thinking, data analysis and problem solving. There’s a wide range of fascinating options to choose from, covering biology; chemistry; Earth sciences; environmental sciences; physics; and astronomy and planetary science. Flexible, accessible study arrangements mean you can do all the practical work near where you live, or online in your own home – or taking part in laboratory and field work at specific locations may be an option for some pathways. The Diploma of Higher Education in Natural Sciences is a valuable qualification in its own right, and it’s also equivalent to the first and second year of a full-time degree – so you only need to study an additional 120 credits at Level 3 to gain an honours degree in natural sciences.
