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 and communication, and to supplement these with the experimental, theoretical and analytical skills needed for a career in research and industry. In your final year you will undertake a major project or dissertation, working in a research group with a member of staff. MSci final-year projects address questions at the frontiers of our research fields, and the most successful have led to publications in scientific journals. You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. Our physics 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.
