Course summary

Whether you want to explore the world at sub-atomic level or on a cosmological scale, you'll study physics under the guidance of experts. This degree provides you with the concepts and mathematical tools you'll need for a deep understanding of modern physics. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in well-known laboratories and research facilities including Jodrell Bank and the National Nuclear Laboratory. The University’s expertise was recognised as far back as 1969 when we were one of the scientific centres chosen to carry out tests on samples gathered from the Moon by Neil Armstrong’s historic Apollo 11 mission. Today we have some of the world's leading experts contributing to world class research and you'll get the chance to learn from them during your studies. Laboratory. The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements.
