About this course

You will learn about the fundamental building blocks and forces of nature, and how quantum physics and relativity help us understand the world around us - from the infinitesimal scale of particle and nuclear physics, through to the microscopic level of atoms and molecules.

In year one, you will receive a comprehensive grounding in physics and mathematics. In year two, you will develop a fundamental understanding of the principles of physics, including practical work in the laboratory and computational physics.

In your final year, you will undertake a major project or dissertation, working in a research group and with a member of staff.

One final-year option is the Physics Education scheme, in which your project is centred on teaching in a school; or you could choose the Industrial Group Project, based on a real problem set by external clients or industrial partners.
