Physics with a Preliminary Year

This course is designed for those who don't have the qualifications needed for the BSc/MSci Physics, but who demonstrate scientific potential through good passes in GCSE Mathematics and Science or workplace experience. In the preliminary year you will study mathematics and physics and choose a third subject that is appropriate to your own background and needs. You will then be ready to join the BSc Physics degree. 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 skills and entrepreneurship. 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.
