Physics (4 years)

The distinctive four-year MPhys Physics degree is the ideal choice for students who want to become professional physicists. From quantum mechanics to the evolution of the universe, you’ll explore the topics that interest you most at a profound level, learning from experts who share your passion. All MPhys programmes build on the BSc Physics, allowing for extra specialisation and depth of study. This degree is also the pathway to three flagship programmes, which our top students can transfer to in their second year. On the MPhys Particle Physics with a Research Year Abroad flagship degree, students have a unique opportunity to relocate to CERN in Switzerland. The MPhys Physics with a Year of Experimental Research flagship degree enables students to spend their final year immersed in our world-class laboratories. And the MPhys Physics with Industrial Placement flagship degree gives students the opportunity to spend six months working on an original research project in an industrial laboratory. The University of Southampton is a great place to study physics; we’re ranked fourth in the Russell Group for course satisfaction in physics by the Guardian University Guide 2020. You’ll also have access to exceptional research-grade facilities, including a rooftop observatory and specialist photonics labs. Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from physicists and engineers, to actuaries and statisticians, scientific journalists and medical researchers. Many students go onto further study. This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
