Physics with Professional Experience - Queen Mary University of London

This programme will be an Institute of Physics (IoP) accredited BSc in Physics comprising of four years full time study. The programme covers the whole of the "core of Physics" as specified by the IoP in the compulsory modules and is structured to allow for increasing module choice in the first, second and fourth years of study. The third year of study will normally be conducted at a external industrial stakeholder. A total equivalent to 120 credits of study should be completed during each of years 1, 2 and 4 and a total full time equivalent of between the nominal 22 weeks of study and 1.0 FTE should normally be undertaken during the placement year. Progress during the placement year will be monitored and lead to a pass/fail progression to year 4. Failure to pass the placement year will result in demotion to the nominal standard degree option (without placement year qualification), and failure of the placement year will remain on the student transcript. Assessment related to the placement year will take place during year 3 (zero credit module). There will be an elective in the 4th year where the placement year work could be written up as a 15 credit independent project module. Students failing the placement year, will be automatically transferred onto the standard BSc programme and required to take a 30 credit independent project as part of their final year of the F300 programme to satisfy IoP accreditation and credit requirements. A BSc graduate from this programme should be able to enter further training at MSc level or enter any of a number of other careers using the transferable skills gained during their studies and the placement year. NOTE: The IoP accreditation requires that students undertake an independent project during their studies. If in retrospect it is deemed that a student who has successfully completed a placement has not worked independently on a problem that satisfies the IoP requirement, then that student will be required to take an independent project in their final year of study and would not be able to take the elective placement year module in their final year. This may happen in exceptional circumstances and is not the normal expectation for students on this programme.
