For Prospective Students


As from 2020 the Faculty of Science will offer three new streams leading to a BSc degree with a more interdisciplinary focus  

  • Stream: Biomedical Mathematical Sciences
  • Stream: Applied Medicinal Chemistry
  • Stream: Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

To read more about these streams, click here. For the curricula of these streams, click here. You can also go to undergraduate programmes in the Faculty of Science.

The Faculty of Science is committed to the education of young people in the natural sciences to increase the knowledge base of our community, specifically in the fields of science and technology. We offer a variety of programmes designed to prepare our graduates to take up their role as scientific professionals and in addition to this, to equip students with sufficient background knowledge to enter postgraduate study programmes in Biodiversity and Ecology, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Human Life Sciences, Physics, Chemistry and Polymer Science, Earth Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Sport Science and Science Education.

The Faculty has introduced a number of interventions to support undergraduate students, such as a tutor programme in which students with problems are identified early and academic support provided. With regard to our language policy, at the first year level we attempt to provide tuition in Afrikaans and English in parallel groupings, with interpreting services offered as and where needed from the second year level.
