The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences is committed to educating young scientists in support of the South African government’s initiative to increase the knowledge base of our community, specifically in the fields of science and technology. The Faculty offers a variety of programmes ranging from the more fundamental mathematical and physical sciences to the biological and more applied agricultural and food sciences.
Our programmes are designed to prepare our graduates to be scientific professionals for the job market and in addition to this to equip students with sufficient background knowledge to enter postgraduate study programmes. In addition to the normal degree programmes the Faculty also offers a four-year BSc programme which is a one-year extension of our normal study programmes. This provides an opportunity to students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements for the programmes mentioned in this prospectus, but who show the potential to learn the necessary skills when given the opportunity.
Prospective students must consult the faculty yearbook (undergraduate) and/or the faculty brochure for more information on admission requirements of the programmes offered.
