FACULTY OF NATURAL SCIENCES
School of Physical and Chemical Sciences
Different qualifications (degrees) can be obtained in the Faculty of Natural Sciences. A specific qualification may be obtained in one or more programmes (the term programme indicates a specific field of study), and in each programme one or more curricula are available. A prospective student must therefore first decide which qualification he wants to obtain. For example, after a student has decided he would like obtain a B.Sc. degree, he has to select a programme, for instance the physical and chemical programme, the computer and mathematical programme or the environmental and biological programme etc. If the student decides on the environmental and biological programme for instance, he must then study the different curricula offered in this programme and finally decide on a curriculum. Information and the rules for the different qualifications, programmes and curricula are explained in this Calendar.
North-West University is authorised to award the following degrees in undergraduate studies in the Faculty of Natural Sciences:
