Visiting students - Natural Sciences
As a visiting student at York you'll be fully integrated into academic life at a world-class, research-led university.
The School of Natural Sciences is a friendly, stimulating and supportive environment for students studying interdisciplinary science. Due to timetabling and other constraints, students must choose to study modules from a particular pathway, it is not possible to mix modules across the pathways.
You must have the appropriate academic background to study with us.
Choosing your modules
Natural Science students take their modules across the constituent departments. See Archaeology, Biology, Chemistry, Environment and Geography, Mathematics and Physics for relevant module information. We will contact you during early August to discuss your module registration.
You can study in our department for the following periods only:
- Full academic year
- Semester 1 only
- Semester 2 only
Examination and assessment
Assessment is mainly by examination during the Common Examination Periods in January and Semester 2. Alternate assessment is not available.
