University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Master the mysteries of physics from first principles to advanced problem-solving. You’ll be prepared for a career in industry or academia. Physics is ‘the science of everything’. Study matter, energy and how they interact from the subatomic to cosmological scales.
Learn about the structure of physical laws and take part in their discovery. Along the way you will learn to think like a physicist. You’ll also develop powerful problem-solving skills, preparing you not only for a career in physics, but many other fields as well.
You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills of an independent scientist, with sound mathematical and experimental expertise, and the ability to solve complex problems on your own.
The Master of Physics (MPhys) degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc courses, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You’ll study masters-level units and carry out a major research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.
