Course summary

This is a four-year course with integrated masters. It is accredited by the Institute of Physics for a full Chartered Physicist qualification. If offers a wide range of optional modules, so you can explore new areas of physics and specialise in the ones that interest you the most. You can study topics as diverse as cosmology, nanoscale, and medical imaging. What’s more, there is the flexibility to transfer between most physics courses after the first year. In the fourth year, you will focus on more specialised areas and complete a year-long research project. Under the guidance of our expert staff, you will benefit from a range of learning styles. These include group work, delivering seminars, projects and independent learning.We have received the highest rating of ‘Gold’ for teaching excellence (Teaching Excellence Framework 2017). Some of our teaching staff share their love of physics with budding scientists worldwide through the popular Sixty Symbols YouTube channel.We have a proud history of learning and innovation. Research undertaken within the School, by Professor Sir Peter Mansfield, was recognised with a 2003 Nobel Prize for the invention of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) body scanners. This technology has already helped more than half a billion people worldwide. More recently, our use of quantum technologies to understand how the brain works is changing the way that neurological conditions are detected and treated. We have been ranked joint third in the UK for research quality in physics (Research Excellence Framework 2014).Studying advanced physics will enable you to become more adaptable and better at problem-solving. These are invaluable traits for any career. Our students go on to work in a variety of industries, including engineering, aerospace, IT, and finance.We encourage students to share their fascination with physics with the wider community through our outreach programme. This programme can help you further develop skills such as organisation, communication and team working. We also have an active student society, PhysSoc, which organises social events throughout the year.
