Physics with Research Placement

Master the mysteries of physics from first principles to advanced problem-solving. You’ll be prepared for a career in industry or academia. Physics is ‘the science of everything’. Study matter, energy and how they interact from the subatomic to cosmological scales. Learn about the structure of physical laws and take part in their discovery. Along the way you will learn to think like a physicist. You’ll also develop powerful problem-solving skills, preparing you not only for a career in physics, but many other fields as well. As a graduate, you will combine sound mathematical and experimental expertise. You’ll be able to grasp new concepts and apply them to a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar challenges. The Master of Physics (MPhys) degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc students, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You’ll study masters-level units and a major research project, preparing you for more academic or technical roles, postgraduate study or a career in research.
