    I've seen that a good portion go onto grad school, and I suspect many into industry. I'd expect that the multidisciplinary approach would be attractive to employers.

    Exceptionally high, and not just in scientific fields either. In fact, you'd be hard pushed to find a degree that is more employable in a wide variety of fields

    Yep, that's one of the main reasons they go on to do so well in non-scientific areas after university.

    Most employers and HR dont know what it is so that can be annoying .. But other than that its no different to other science degrees e.g. maths, Physics, Chem, Geoscience etc.. Since thats what your basically doing

    Actually, very few people know it period! Especially since it's uk specific. But as soon as you say "multidisciplinary" people get it :-)

    Yeah can be annoying when you apply for a job and they reject you because they dont realise your degree fits with the job

    Depends a lot on the uni and course structure. Most allow you to specialise to a single/ joint honours subject by the end of the degree, the employability of which would depend on that particular department. Those which your graduate from with a degree in Natural Sciences may have different employability, but the multidisciplinary approach would probably make you most employable in careers such as teaching where a broader knowledge base is useful, whereas for scientific research those degrees which allow you to specialise may have higher employability as the specialism means that you know as much about physics/ chemistry/ materials science/ molecular biology/ whatever as someone who did a degree in just that subject, with the added knowledge about related subjects which you would have studied in your first year(s) of Natural Sciences (which is definitely an advantage as many scientific research projects are now exploring more interdisciplinary areas of science between the traditional boundaries of biology/ physics/ chemistry).
    The best place to look is in each unis prospectus/ website, where this information should be published.

    Ok thankyou very much . The natural science option won't be from Bath,UCL or Cambridge but Leeds. Tbh I'm pretty pissed off about this because I really want to do natural sciences at leeds (AAA) but I just envisage HR regarding it naively as a environmental related degree , you know something to do with natural science in the everyday language I.e trees and global warming. Instead I'm thinking of just doing Bsc biological sciences because it is (AAB )
