You will learn about the fundamental building blocks and forces of nature and how quantum physics and relativity help us understand the world around us.
Year one gives you a comprehensive grounding in physics and mathematics, and year two focuses on the principles of physics. Flexibility and choice are key features of a Bristol Physics degree, and you are usually able to transfer between courses in the first two years.
In your final year you will undertake a major project or dissertation, working in a research group with a member of staff. Our students' final-year projects address questions at the frontiers of our research fields, and the most successful have been published in scientific journals.
You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. We encourage you to develop a broad range of skills, including the experimental, theoretical and analytical skills needed for a career in research and industry. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment, a testament to the value that employers place on these skills.
The course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
