Physics with Theoretical Physics

We have designed this Physics with Theoretical Physics BSc to give you a broad understanding of all of the fundamental elements of physics and especially theoretical physics. You will cover topics such as relativity, quantum mechanics, fields and waves, electromagnetism, nuclear and particle physics. Problem solving and project work is an important part of this course, and you’ll learn about team work, group organisation, and the skills of oral and poster presentations. We also encourage you to work with a school, to experience teaching and develop the skill of presenting information to non-experts. You’ll be assigned a personal tutor to support your development and our Department encourages an atmosphere in which students feel able to easily approach academic staff. Our Student-Staff Liaison Committee provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and feedback on teaching. Staff and students are members of the Maxwell Society, which is the Department of Physics' social and lecture society. Teaching We will teach you through a combination of lectures and laboratory classes, tutorials and project work. All of our academic staff are involved with the undergraduate teaching programme. You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module. Assessment We will assess you primarily through written exams, although occasionally also through practical laboratory examinations, laboratory reports, class tests, coursework and oral presentations. Course accreditation (may not apply) This course is accredited by the IOP (Institute of Physics). Regulating body King’s College London is regulated by the Higher Education Funding Council for England
