Physics

Our stimulating and flexible Physics BSc degree programme gives you a firm grounding in core physics. Flexibility is the essence of this degree, allowing you to select a range of modules to suit particular interests, covering a broad spectrum of cutting-edge topics, leaving space for you to specialise where you wish. The Physics BSc is ideal if you want to keep your studies broad, want to specialise in an area we do not offer a specific programme for, or are unsure what you might want to focus on in the future. You can swap between the Physics BSc and Physics MSci until the end of the second year, provided you meet the criteria. Additionally you can swap to the Physics and Astrophysics or the Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology course at the end of your first or second year too. You can also choose to take a year abroad, subject to language requirements. There are many opportunities to undertake project work during your degree, foe example as part of your lab work in the first two years. A project develops a wide range of skills including planning and report writing and the group studies in your final year is a major project which is undertaken in groups of 10-20 students. The task requires the group to work as a team and enables you to solve a problem of much greater magnitude than could be attempted by an individual. The team work skills learnt here are invaluable in success in a future career. You will be taught by academics who are global experts in their field, you'll gain a broad understanding of the essential concepts of physics, ranging from entropy to quantum mechanics and beyond. The transferable skills you’ll also learn will make you very employable; including problem solving, computing and giving presentations.
