You will learn about the fundamental building blocks and forces of nature and how quantum physics and relativity help us understand the world around us. The course gives you the opportunity to develop a physicist's broad range of skills, including problem-solving, numeracy, teamwork and the ability to communicate complicated concepts. You can expand your skill set further by taking part in physics-specific employability sessions, which include presentation, interview and networking skills. Your third year includes a major project or dissertation. Project options include the Physics Education scheme, centred on teaching in a school, and the Industrial Group Project, based on a real problem set by industrial partners. Recent partners include Sellafield, Bristol Zoo, Siemens and The Fat Duck. You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. Our graduates have an excellent record of employment, a testament to the value that employers place on the transferable skills that you gain on this course. The course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
