Course summary

Physics reaches from the quark out to the largest of galaxies, and encompasses all the matter and timescales within these extremes. At the heart of a professional physicist is a fascination with the ‘how and why’ of the material world around us. We aim to equip you with the skills to understand these phenomena and to qualify you for a range of career pathways. After getting to grips with the broad knowledge base on which physical science is built, including electricity, light and mechanics, you will study a range of topics including medical physics, quantum physics and atomic and nuclear physics as well as the chance for deeper exploration into specific topics such as space probe instrumentation, fibre optics or the atomic-scale structure of new engineering materials. While at Kent you’ll have access to our fantastic facilities including optical spectrum analysers, two-stage light gas gun for impact studies and on-campus Beacon Observatory.Our four-year course is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IoP) includes a paid work placement after your second year of study, which can help further enhance your employability. We offer help and advice in finding a placement, and keep in touch with you throughout the year.
