As one of the most fundamental of the sciences, and the basis of our understanding of the Universe, physics is a fascinating area to study. It often holds the key to bringing new technology to its full potential and is a rich research environment. Teams at the University are currently working in quantum computing, light scattering and microfluidics. Combining theory and practical work, this programme broadens your knowledge and understanding of a range of modern and classical physics topics. The School of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics prides itself on creating exceptional opportunities for students. Students have access to some of the best teaching facilities in the UK, learn in small classes taught by practising scientists and mathematicians, and have exceptional opportunities for research in UH laboratories or on outside placements. We have one of the largest astronomy research groups in the UK and our teaching observatory at Bayfordbury is widely regarded as the best in the country. Students conduct research projects supervised by scientists and mathematicians in the School and have exceptional one-year placement opportunities in the UK and abroad. You will develop practical skills in custom-built teaching laboratories. Groups are small and well-supervised.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
