Physics at University of Surrey - UCAS

Course summary

Why choose this course Our BSc and MPhys offer you a flexible choice of modules across many different topics, covering both theoretical and applied areas of physics. Our teaching builds on the broad range of expertise among our acclaimed academics. There are two unique aspects of both our courses: 1. Our award-winning Professional Training placements: -Within the BSc, the option to take a paid Professional Training placement in industry gives you invaluable hands-on experience to enhance your employability. -On our MPhys, you’ll take a year-long, masters-level integrated research placement. This can be in one of our world-leading research groups or at one of our international partner institutions. 2. Our focus on undergraduate research and innovation: -All undergraduates have the opportunity to apply for paid 8-10 week summer research placements in our research groups and those of our South East Physics Network partners. -We offer in-house ‘research and innovation’ and ‘enterprise’ grants that students can apply for to fund a research placement, attend a conference or develop a new business idea. What you will study On our BSc and MPhys, you’ll study core topics, such as particle, nuclear and atomic physics, and optional modules. During your first year, you can switch between most of our specialist physics courses. The option to take an integrated research year or Professional Training placement also gives you invaluable hands-on experience to enhance your employability. Formal lectures are complemented with work in our specialist radiation laboratories, which have recently been refurbished and enlarged at a cost of £2.7m. As an undergraduate student, you’ll use these labs to undertake experiments related to the Nuclear and Particle Physics module. You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MPhys. An MPhys is a direct route to a masters qualification, known as an integrated masters, and includes an integrated research year. This allows you to develop your skills in an academic or industrial arena, before returning for your final masters-level modules.
