This four year course includes a foundation year which is ideal for you if you do not have a strong enough background in physics and mathematics to meet our direct entry requirements. The foundation will provide you with a firm grounding in scientific, intellectual and investigative skills. After this, you will then progress onto the exciting and vibrant three year BSc Physics degree which examines the main elements of modern physics through a combination of theoretical, mathematical and applied topics, giving you insight into the laws that govern the universe – from the smallest sub atomic particles to the grand scale of the cosmos. Over your three years of study, you will be given a broad presentation of the key physical laws and principles of modern physics alongside basic mathematics. You will then progress to the application of physics in industry, technology and engineering. This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics. You will study in the Department of Physics and learn from a faculty of leading researchers who are at the forefront of innovation in teaching and learning. The Department has a strong focus on practical science and hands on learning so you will spend a lot of time in our modern and well equipped teaching laboratories carrying out experiments, supported by our expert technical and academic staff.
