Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It observes and explores the physical laws and principles that govern the nature of the universe and is stimulating and inspiring. On this course, you’ll develop thorough knowledge and understanding of the theoretical basis of modern physics, with particular focus on the mathematical aspects. You can explore advanced topics in physics that relate to our research strengths – from cosmology to quantum information. You’ll develop a solid grounding in how mathematical methods are applied to physics topics. On this course you’ll get involved in real research via several routes, such as through our group industrial project module and your final year research project. We offer all students the chance to apply to do a summer research placement, where you’ll work with our researchers and be paid a salary. As well as advancing you as a physicist, these opportunities allow you to develop transferable skills that can help you achieve your aspirations.
