    Hi, I am certain that i want to do natural sciences as a degree and i know of a few places that offer it like Cambridge, UCL, Bath etc.. I am just wondering what type of styles of learning the different universities offer. For example, Are they mostly lectures, lab work etc...
    I know I may be trying to sort this out too early, but it'd be great to know so i know what universities to look around in the summer if i do and to know which university id most likely enjoy and learn better at.

    Thanks In Advance

    I do NatSci at Durham, and here there's a good mix of lectures and labs with the odd tutorials and workshops in Chemistry. Here you basically do modules that the people doing the "pure" subject do...for example in my first year I did "Core Chemistry 1A" which all the chemists and NatScis doing chem do, but the pure chemists also do Core Chem 1B too, as do some NatScis. This year I'm doing Core 2 and the organic lab module, whereas the chemists also do physical and inorganic lab modules. There are no modules that only NatScis do.
