BSc Natural Sciences or BSc Molecular Science?

    Hi there

    Since September I've completed S151 - maths for science and S154 - science starts here. I also started S104 - exploring science at the same time, and picked up MST121 - using mathematics in February. Currently I am down to do a B64 BSc Natural Sciences degree. Under the transitional arrangements I need to declare my qualification so as to remain eligible for tuition fees until 2017 or the end of my degree.

    I'm in a bit of a pickle as to which degree to go for. Obviously there is an overlap, but would you say that Natural Sciences is a bit broader than Molecular Science? The latter seems better for analytical chemistry, which is relevant to my current job.

    Also, I assume that I am only eligible to have one degree's worth funded, so another degree would cost me for the extra 120 credits or so?

    One final question: do people tend to write what they have specialised in, along with relevant modules, on their CV? And how much do employers take note of this?

    Thanks!

    Hey there isn't the Molecular Science degree being shut down by 2014? They've phased out some of the compulsory modules and the last presentations for the residentials are this/next summer I think.

    Yep, forget Molecular Sciences and plan out your Natural Sciences pathway. You'd really need to be finishing up your L2 modules about now to make that 2014 deadline.
