Course summary

Introducing MPhys Physics with a Year Abroad

This programme combines the opportunity to undertake an innovative research project at a partner institution overseas. Course content covers all aspects of physics, from the very basics to the current frontiers of knowledge.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP). In addition fully meets the educational requirements for Chartered Physicist.

How will I learn?

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials and practicals, which fully exploit the latest teaching technology and help to develop your problem-solving skills.

From third year you will also complete group projects and undertake research projects under the supervision of one of the School’s academic or research staff members.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is by a combination of continuous assessment and examinations. Practical and computing courses have laboratory write-ups and checkpoint assessment.

Other courses are assessed by presentations, assessing each other’s work and writing critical reviews of scientific literature.

Career opportunities

A year abroad will provide you with valuable research skills and offers the chance to broaden your views and gain new insight from different perspectives.

This programme provides a basis for a career in any number of disciplines. In particular, our graduates are highly sought after for jobs in computing, the manufacturing industry, finance, accountancy, teaching and the public sector.

Graduates with a first or a good upper second class degree have the chance of obtaining a postgraduate studentship for a PhD, with the possibility of a career in research or research support.

The PhD is usually followed by one or more postdoctoral fellowships. These are fully paid professional roles, lasting one to three years, and in many cases are taken up abroad. Normally, a permanent job is sought after such a fellowship.
