Physics with Studies in North America

**In brief:** - The programme is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP) and benefits from regular lectures from visiting industry professionals - Wide range of exciting specialisms and career options - Third year of study in the United States - Overseas study available - International students can apply Physics underpins much in our everyday lives from the structure of the universe to your digital watch. Basic magnetism has led to life saving equipment such as CAT and MRI scanners and photonics research has led to CFDs, LEDs and barcode scanners. In fact, much of today’s technology is founded in physics. Our physics courses combine a fundamental understanding of the laws of physics that govern the behaviour of all systems from the very small to the very large, with applications in modern technologies underpinned by these laws. The course is built around a core of compulsory modules giving a thorough grounding in physics. You will also take part in group projects that will allow you to develop your team working, problem solving, communication and presentation skills; all desirable within the industrial and research communities. Physics is widely considered to be a challenging subject and so here at Salford we place great emphasis on small group teaching so that you feel fully supported and able to ask questions, after all, all the best physicists have enquiring minds. A unique part of our physics degree is our emphasis on employer engagement. We consulted professional physicists from industry when we designed this course to ensure that the content we are teaching you is robust and will prepare you for the world of work. Additionally, physicists working in industry also drop by to give guest seminars and set real life problems for you to work on. Due to the analytical and problem solving nature of physics, this degree opens doors to a wide range of careers. Previous graduates have commonly found employment in the following sectors: medical physics, defence, finance, research, education, engineering and nuclear. As a Salford graduate you will have no shortage of skills to take you into a successful, exciting career. This pathway will offer you the opportunity to study your **third year at the University of Toledo in Ohio**. We have been sending students to North America for over 10 years and all have found it a positive and rewarding experience that helped them to build confidence and widen their cultural experience. You will also **graduate with a Master level degree**. **A Foundation Year is available for this course.**
