Course summary

**About This Course**To study physics is to ask questions – to interrogate everything. What is the nature of matter? What are the origins of the universe? What is the basis for the mechanics of sound? And how will that ocean wave move next? Incredibly diverse, abstract and yet also creative, without physics, there would be no answers to many of these questions, from the smallest to the most vast.Our foundation year is for students with a passion for the subject, but who don’t have the necessary academic qualifications. It will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to progress onto our Physics degree course.Move onto the degree and you’ll be joining a multidisciplinary faculty with a thriving research community that includes specialist groups with expertise in geophysics, astrophysics, fluid mechanics, chemical physics and quantum physics. You will take advantage of top-class facilities, including spectroscopy and ultrafast laser equipment, high-tech geophysics apparatus and experimental wave tanks.**Overview**If you don’t yet meet the academic requirements to start a physics degree, our Foundation Year course is for you. It’s designed to fill gaps in your knowledge and provide you with the skills you'll need to continue on as an undergraduate.You’ll study core modules in physics and mathematics, and select from optional modules in chemistry or computing, depending on your interests. On successful completion of your Foundation Year you'll be able to continue on to our BSc Physics course.We welcome mature students, students who have previously not studied science but who want to take a new direction in their career, and students who were disadvantaged during their secondary education. We’ll consider your application on a case-by case basis, and you’ll be interviewed before being offered a place on the course. You do not need to have AS or A2 level qualifications in order to apply.Physics is not only a fascinating discipline, it’s a highly regarded qualification too. Study at UEA and you’ll develop a deep curiosity about the workings of our universe and gain powerful scientific skills to employ in a huge range of areas, so you’ll leave as a highly employable graduate.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
