Our distinctive BSc Physics programme will provide you with a robust education in modern physics. You will learn the core tools of relativity, quantum mechanics and electromagnetism, and how these theories can describe the universe precisely – from galaxies to subatomic particles. Key areas of study include classical mechanics, electromagnetism, special relativity, the quantum world of atomic, nuclear and particle physics, quantum physics of materials, wave physics, and light as an electromagnetic wave. The MPhys allows for further specialisation and there is flexibility to move between the BSc and MPhys courses up until the end of the second year. The University of Southampton is a great place to study physics; physics and astronomy at Southampton is ranked fourth in UK (Guardian University Guide 2017), and we’re first within the Russell Group for student satisfaction (NSS 2017). Our BSc Physics is accredited by the Institute of Physics. Plus, you’ll have access to exceptional research-grade facilities, including rooftop observatories and specialist photonics labs. Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from actuaries and statisticians to crime analysts, scientific journalists and medical researchers.
