Course summary

**This degree is professionally accredited by the Institute of Physics. As well as your main Imperial degree (BSc), you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the Royal College of Science (ARCS) on completion of this course.**Physics at Imperial covers a broad range of topics in both fundamental and applied physics. All of our physics courses follow the same core curriculum for the first two years. This gives you a good grounding in physics, mathematics and experimental methods, and prepares you for advanced study in later years. Topics include:- Mathematics- Mechanics- Electromagnetism- Quantum physics- Relativity- Optics- ThermodynamicsA wide range of optional modules is available as you progress through the course, many of which are directly linked to the research of our nine internationally-recognised research groups so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. Research in our Department has contributed to ground-breaking discoveries in many different fields, from astrophysics to quantum optics and laser science.This freedom to tailor the course to your interests allows you to continue with a broad physics education or specialise in a particular area such as theoretical physics or plasma physics. Current areas covered in year three include:- Astrophysics- Medical imaging- Plasma physics- Cosmology- Laser technology- X-rays and ultrasound- Nuclear diagnostics and MRIAll our courses include a substantial final-year project, usually within one of our research groups. Practical work is an important part of the Physics curriculum at Imperial, and you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities as well as data collected from major experiments such as CERN. You will also gain a solid understanding of how to use computers as tools to help model and understand the physics of complicated phenomena. This includes using computers to make advanced calculations and analyse data, and how to use the programming language Python.The high level of shared content in the first two years of our Physics degrees means that transfer to another degree within the Department is usually possible in the first two years. If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa, but our International Student Support Team are here to help advise and support you. Please note there is no benefit in applying to multiple courses within the Department of Physics, and you should only apply to one course from this department.
