International Bachelor in Natural Sciences

Bachelor of Natural Science, 180 ECTS
Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Institution Roskilde University (RUC)
Campus Roskilde
Duration 3 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8400 EUR
A bachelor programme begins with a one year basic section of interdisciplinary studies. The last two years you will specialise in one or two bachelor subjects.


The International Bachelor in Natural Science offers you the opportunity to study natural science in an international environment. Foreign students make up 80% of the programme’s participants, so you will become part of an exciting study environment that will prepare you to work with a broad range of nationalities in international companies and organizations.
From the very first day, the project work will teach you to think and work based on research. Each term, you will formulate a specific science problem in collaboration with your team. At the end of the term, you must present a research-based solution that is based on scientific literature and preferably on your own experiments. Each of your projects will have a researcher assigned, who will act as your supervisor throughout the process.
During the first year, you will receive training in key scientific theories, methods and models. Through your project work and courses, you will learn the basic methods for how to examine nature using experiments, analyses and models. You will also select courses in biology, computer science, physics, geography, chemistry, mathematics, environment and statistics.

In the final two years, you will specialise in two bachelor subjects. You can choose from among a number of combinations, either with two natural science subjects, or with one subject from natural science and one from the humanities or social science.

Career Opportunities

On the succesfull completion of the programme, you will be awarded a Bachelor degree. Students completing the Bachelor programme in Natural Sciences are entitled to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) title (with specification) followed by the specific names of the subjects.
