Virtual Campus
We strive to be a transformed leading research-intensive faculty in Africa, which positions itself as the university of choice for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as for academic staff and researchers who wish to excel in natural and agricultural sciences.

"In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." Galileo Galilei

"A scientist is happy, not in resting on his attainments, but in the steady acquisition of fresh knowledge." Max Planck

Welcome to the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences


The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (NAS) will place you at the front-line of science and push you to think beyond the normal boundaries. You can pursue careers ranging from the proverbial A to Z: from an actuary to a zoologist, from a forensic expert to a meteorologist – the list is as endless as mathematics itself. Once you graduate with an internationally recognised degree from the NAS Faculty, you will have had access to programmes that will allow you to be ready for the workplace or able to start your own business and contribute to the economy. 

The Faculty focuses on solving grand challenges and Millennium Development Goals, by finding cures for poverty-related diseases such as Tuberculosis, HIV/ AIDS and Malaria, as well as (among other things) being committed to finding solutions to global food security and clean water. 

We will provide you with a range of support offerings to ensure that you can excel in an academically challenging environment – you will always find notes, tips and resources available online for additional revision and to help you to better understand key concepts.
