Discover more about physics and its modern applications as you explore science in a broad range of modules that combine research-informed teaching with industry-relevant laboratory equipment. Physics is the fundamental science that underpins much of the technology we see around us. Modern communications, transport and energy systems all originate from advances in our understanding of physics. Our Physics degree prepares you for a challenging and rewarding career. The course includes a wide range of research-informed modules, such as quantum mechanics, astrophysics, lasers, nuclear physics, artificial intelligence and more. A high proportion of your time will be spent in our modern laboratory facilities, equipped with industry- standard and research-quality instrumentation. Here, you will acquire the necessary laboratory and practical skills to supplement your scientific and technical knowledge. In each year of study, you are encouraged to work on industry guided projects with our industrial partners, or other companies in the UK or Europe via an optional four-week placement in your first year of study, a second-year Work Based Learning module which offers a five-week placement, and your final-year research project supervised by an academic member of staff or industrial partner, or both. In addition, this course is available with an optional placement year that can be taken between your second and third year of study.
