Course summary

Join a University ranked in the UK top five for Physics research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning. Physics focuses on the fundamental building blocks and forces of nature. It explores how quantum physics and relativity help us to comprehend the world around us. Topics range from the infinitesimal scale of particle and nuclear physics to the cosmic scale of galaxies and the Universe. Year one will give you a comprehensive grounding in physics and mathematics. In year two, you will develop a fundamental understanding of the principles of physics. This includes practical work in the laboratory and computational physics. Flexibility and choice are key features of a Bristol Physics degree. A range of units in the third and fourth year means that you can specialise in the topics that you find most fascinating. In your final year, you will undertake a major project, working in a research group with a staff member. Our students' final-year projects address questions at the frontier of our research fields. The most successful have been published in scientific journals. Join our friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. We encourage you to develop a broad range of experimental, theoretical and analytical skills. These are vital for a career in research or industry. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment post-study. This is a testament to the value that employers place on these skills. Think Big bursaries of £3,000 are available to support first-year international undergraduate students in this subject area.
