Consider studying Chemistry at UKZN

Chemistry the branch of science concerned with the substances of which matter is composed, the investigation of their properties and reactions, and the use of such reactions to form new substance.

It is often described as the central science because it touches all the other sciences. 

Studying Physics at UKZN

Physics is a science that deals with matter and energy and their interactions

Listen to UKZN scientists and students discuss the field of Physics, it’s career paths and our programmes at UKZN.
