Our stimulating Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology BSc degree programme enables you to focus on the fundamental building blocks of our universe – searching for answers to the biggest questions by studying the smallest particles and their fundamental interactions. This Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology BSc degree course draws on the expertise of Birmingham particle physicists and astronomers engaged in cutting-edge research at CERN and other international laboratories and observatories. This will enable you to gain strong theoretical and practical skills from experts in their field. You will gain a broad understanding of the essential concepts of physics, ranging from entropy to quantum mechanics and beyond and in addition you have specialised courses in particle physics and cosmology. Another feature is that you will have the opportunity to visit CERN during your degree and have a tour of the laboratory guided by Birmingham physicists who work there. There are many opportunities to undertake project work during your degree, for example as part of your lab work in the first two years. A project develops a wide range of skills including planning and report writing. Group studies in your final year is a major project which is undertaken in groups of 10-20 students. The task requires the group to work as a team and enables you to solve a problem of much greater magnitude than could be attempted by an individual. The team work skills and transferable skills learnt here are invaluable in success in a future career.
