MSci Integrated Science is the course that we, your instructors, all wish that we could have done as undergraduates. If, like us, you are excited by science in general, and especially by the problem of how life works, then this could be the course for you!"
Our primary goal with this innovative course is to strengthen you as a scientist, by training you across disciplines. Using a blend of classroom instruction, team-based problem-solving, laboratory experimental work and individual study, you will learn to think creatively and quantitatively, formulate problems, and solve them by drawing freely on the techniques and perspectives of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computation.
Why study MSci Integrated Science?
- AAA to include Mathematics and either Biology or Chemistry
- You will also need GCSE English at grade C/grade 4 or above
- 38 to include 6 in Higher Level Mathematics and 6 in either Higher Level Biology or Higher Level Chemistry.
UCAS code: CF10
Award: Degree of Master of Science
Duration: 4 years full time (30 weeks per year)
Starts: October 2021
Location of study: University of Warwick
Year one is divided into two-week blocks, with each block defined by a scientific question. We begin Term 1 with four weeks (2 blocks) of introductory experimental skills and computer skills and then progressively increase the size-scale of the problems, moving on from Atoms and Molecules (Term 1) to Organelles and Cells (Term 2) and finally Embryos and Organisms (Term 3).
Years two and three
In years 2 and 3, your course will make extensive use of existing, highly successful modules within the School of Life Sciences. To do this, your cohort will largely merge with a much larger cohort of SLS students for classes, alongside an ongoing programme of WMS integrated science labs and tutorials that aims further to develop your integrated science skills.
In year 4, you will focus almost entirely on lab-based experimental research, pursuing your own project, embedded in an active research lab and closely supported by the lab’s lead. You will then write a Master's thesis, and graduate with a Master's in Integrated Science.
Our open days give you the chance to hear more about the course, meet staff and students, visit the Medical School, tour the campus and get a real feel for life at Warwick. We hold four open days per year, usually in June and October. Find out more.
Live chatsWe hold regular live online chats where you can chat to members of our course teams and ask any questions you may have. If you'd like to attend a chat please register your interest and we'll let you know when the next session is booked.

This is a new course so there are as yet no previous graduates. We expect that this course will appeal to passionate scientists wishing to pursue an academic career in scientific research. Other potential career paths may include medicine, following a graduate-entry medical programme on completion of this degree.
