A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an undergraduate course of study that takes students three to five years to complete. While in school, students complete a variety of courses to prepare for additional education or future job opportunities.
Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Why study BSc Mathematics at Middlesex?
A degree in mathematics is a highly regarded qualification by a wide range of employers which you can read more about in the Careers tab. However, one of the key areas where employers are increasingly looking for maths graduates to excel is communication - the ability to convey the meaning of complex mathematics to those without the same level of knowledge. As a result of this, we have developed a unique module in ‘Communicating Mathematics’ which will help you become even more desirable to employers when you graduate.... [-]

Key featuresStrong focus on practical work in the field and laboratories to develop skills and problem solving ability. Learn from internationally recognised researchers and gain state-of-the-art scientific knowledge. High quality laboratories including modern instruments and tools. ... [-]
This new course encompasses the ‘artistic’ and the ‘scientific’ to create a new generation of architects who are not only environmentally aware, but able to quantify the environmental and energy impact of their designs. [+]
Biochemistry is a pivotal degree discipline in the modern world and a fundamental element of all the biological sciences. Biochemistry is the study of living systems at the molecular level, and biochemists study the ways in which cells and organisms are formed. This involves examining the structure and function of molecules found in living systems, as well as experimental investigations of the... [+]
Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study at university. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in topology - one of the purest branches of mathematics. Advances in the understanding of chaos provide another example. Ideas from the theory are being applied increasingly in the modelling of complex physical systems such as the atmosphere and lasers. [+]
Environmental science is a combination of social, natural and physical science built around the idea of sustainability. This programme will develop your understanding of the physical landscape and how society impacts on the environment. [+]
BSc Environmental Science (Hons)Environmental science is a combination of social, natural and physical science built around the idea of sustainability. This programme will develop your understanding of the physical landscape and how society impacts on the environment. You will investigate solutions to environmental issues from various perspectives, including scientific, political, legal and philosophical positions. You will graduate with the skills to deal with local and global environmental issues both academically and practically. You will be able to document human impact on the landscape, explore environmental conflicts and issues, develop environmental policy and manage the environment sustainably. Fieldwork is an essential part of the programme, with trips funded by the School. Destinations include the New Forest, the Lake District and south-east Spain. As a member of the Erasmus exchange scheme, we have collaborative arrangements with universities in the Netherlands, Italy and France. This will give you the opportunity to study abroad for a period of time. If you successfully complete at least 36 weeks of the optional work placement, you will be awarded the Diploma of Industrial Study.... [-]
