Physics with a Year in Industry - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** To study physics is to ask questions – to interrogate everything. What is the nature of matter? What are the origins of the universe? What is the basis for the mechanics of sound? And how will that ocean wave move next? Incredibly diverse, abstract and yet also creative, without physics, there would be no answers to many of the questions we face, from the smallest to the most vast. Study physics at UEA and you’ll be joining a multidisciplinary faculty with a thriving research community that includes specialist groups with expertise in geophysics, astrophysics, fluid mechanics, chemical physics and quantum physics. You will take advantage of top-class facilities, including spectroscopy and ultrafast laser equipment, high-tech geophysics apparatus and experimental wave tanks. And you’ll be able to tailor your degree with a large range of optional modules. **Overview** Physics is concerned with the most fundamental questions about nature. It’s an inspiring subject that enables you to cultivate your abstract, creative reasoning and your practical, applied knowledge. During the first two years of this four-year degree, you’ll explore some major themes in physics. You will also have the opportunity, with our support, to secure a placement in a commercial or academic situation. Your third year will be spent working at your placement. This will enable you to develop additional skills and networks that will be of immense benefit after you graduate. In your final year, in addition to continuing to study the major themes of physics, you’ll do a project where you have the chance to research a specific topic of your choice. Throughout the course you will develop an impressive range of transferable skills in mathematics, communication and collaborative work. You will also build practical professional skills in areas like academic research, analytical problem solving and computing. These are highly sought-after skills for which employers in several sectors specifically prefer physics graduates. Physics is not only a fascinating discipline, but a highly regarded qualification too. Study with us at UEA and you’ll develop a deep curiosity about the workings of our universe and gain powerful scientific skills to employ in a huge range of areas, so you’ll leave as a highly employable graduate. Our four-year degree programme introduces you to many of the major themes in physics in your first year, before providing more advanced teaching in the second and fourth years, when you can specialise in a particular field. Your course will culminate in a final year project, giving you the chance to research a topic in more detail. Your third year will be spent on placement. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**
