Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics

**Why choose this course** Our exciting BSc and MPhys Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics courses are unique in the UK. You’ll study the core modules required of a physics degree, but also gain a specialism that combines the quantum world of atomic nuclei with the cosmic scale of astronomy. After all, almost everything you see in the night sky is the result of a nuclear reaction. Physics students at Surrey also benefit from our excellent facilities, the University’s partnership with the National Physical Laboratory and our wide-reaching international placement community. In the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018, our physics courses were ranked top 10 in the UK for overall satisfaction. **What you will study** On our Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics courses, you’ll explore core elements of both traditional physics (e.g. particle physics, atoms and molecules) and topics within astronomy and nuclear physics, reflecting the outstanding research we conduct at Surrey. The additional option to take an integrated research year or Professional Training placement will give you invaluable hands-on experience to enhance your employability. You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MPhys (Master of Physics), a direct route to a masters qualification. On an MPhys course, you’ll spend a year doing research before returning for a final year of masters-level modules. Depending on your progress, you may have the option to switch to a BSc or MPhys during your studies.
