Students studying within the Faculty of Science have some of the newest, largest and most impressive academic homes in the University. Chemistry, Engineering and Physics dominate the other side of Library Road, while Psychology and Computer Science have new purpose-built buildings nearby. Our School of Life Sciences is based at Gibbet Hill campus, a short walk from central campus.
Cutting Edge Research
Our departments and research centres are helping shape the world’s future through their cutting-edge research. They push the boundaries of innovative thinking, and inform the debate on the introduction of new technologies.
This passion for research excellence has fuelled thought-provoking questions like ‘Can we create false memories?’, extraordinary findings like stellar superflares, and medical advances like the world’s first ibuprofen patch.
Science in Schools
The Faculty also works with teachers and schools to prepare the next generation of scientists. Our school resources offer a window into the skills needed for anyone wanting to journey towards a career in science or engineering.
