Faculty of Science
We offer an exciting range of physics courses with the flexibility to allow specialisation in topics ranging from the latest quantum materials to the structure and evolution of the entire universe.
What we offer
BSc (Hons) Physics
This degree is for those wanting a three-year physics course with the option of a fourth sandwich year in employment. An enthusiasm for understanding how fundamental physical theories can be harnessed to solve real world problems and to develop new materials and applications is essential. You should also be keen to develop strong mathematical and instrumentation skills that will enable enhance your possibilities in research or employment.
MPhys (Hons) Applied Physics
This course extends the BSc Applied Physics approach by developing a specialist focus on the modern experimental, theoretical and computational techniques for the development of novel functional materials and instruments for existing and future physics-based technologies. You may choose to follow a path with either an experimental or a theoretical/computational emphasis. You will develop high-level skills and be especially well placed to enter graduate employment in science-based industry or to undertake further research.
MPhys (Hons) Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology
This course unifies the study of the physical world from the sub atomic scale to the whole Universe. You will develop skills in the investigation and solution of astrophysical and cosmological problems using observational, theoretical and computational techniques. The course develops high-level research skills that ensure you will be well suited to enter further research of graduate employment.
BSc (Hons) Physics Astrophysics and Cosmology
This course gives you a deep understanding of the fundamental laws of physics and shows how their application determines the structure and behaviour of the whole universe and its constituent astrophysical parts. Employability skills are embedded within the course ensuring an excellent preparation for your future career.
