Physics with Astrophysics with a Year Abroad (4 years) - University of Kent

At the heart of a professional physicist is a fascination with the ‘how and why’ of the material world around us. Astrophysics emphasises the underlying physical concepts of the stars and galaxies, which make up the Universe. This provides an understanding of the physical nature of bodies and processes in space and the instruments and techniques used in modern astronomical research. We aim to equip you with the skills to understand these phenomena and to qualify you for a range of career pathways. As well as getting to grips with the broad knowledge base on which physical science is built, including electricity, light and mechanics, you’ll study a broad range of topics such as quantum mechanics, atomic, nuclear and particle physics, the mulitwavelength universe and exoplanets and stars, galaxies and the universe. While at Kent you’ll have access to our fantastic facilities including optical spectrum analysers, two-stage light gas gun for impact studies and on-campus Beacon Observatory. The School has a specialist employer engagement officer and through our membership of the South East Physics Network (SEPNet) we can help you with valuable internship and training opportunities. In previous years our students have trained at the European Space Agency and worked in engineering and research companies on summer placements. You spend the third year of this four-year degree at one of our partner universities in the USA, Canada or Hong Kong. You study equivalent courses to those you would take at Kent, but with the chance to broaden your horizons and experience new cultures and places. The final year of the MPhys programme brings your core knowledge and skills up to an advanced level and gives you the opportunity to work as part of a research group conducting cutting-edge research. You work with an academic supervisor as part of their research team gaining invaluable practical experience as well as an understanding of the challenges and rewards of extending knowledge in your field. This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IoP).
