Course summary

Our Physics BSc course will give you an understanding of the fundamental aspects of physics covering areas such as relativity, quantum mechanics, fields and waves, electromagnetism and nuclear physics. You will carry out extensive project work in your third year to gain an insight into the skills and behaviours of scientific research.

Key benefits

  • Join an award-winning department: six former staff and students won Nobel Prizes.
  • Research lies at the heart of our department, so you’ll be taught by internationally renowned scientists.
  • You’ll have access to our newly refurbished laboratory facilities, located in the heart of London.
  • Study the skies using King’s own rooftop observatory and telescope.

You'll gain a broad knowledge of all the fundamental aspects of physics.You will study subjects such as relativity, quantum mechanics, fields and waves, electromagnetism, nuclear and particle physics. Initially, you will follow a set programme, but later in the course there is scope for you to pursue your own interests in greater depth. Problem solving and project work is an important part of this course and you’ll learn about team work, group organisation and the skills of oral and poster presentations. We also encourage you to work with a school, to experience teaching and develop the skill of presenting information to non-experts. You will be allocated a personal tutor who will play a key role in helping you to get the most out of your studies, providing support and encouragement. Personal tutors provide you with the opportunity to periodically take stock of your learning, academic progress and general wellbeing as you progress through your studies, offering guidance on how to seek further support if you need it, and how to access the range of opportunities available to you at King's.

Employability

Our Physics graduates are in high demand because employers recognise the wide range of skills that they possess. We train physicists to be good problem solvers, to think logically and to apply mathematical and computational techniques to real problems.
