Course summary

The course covers all the essential knowledge and practical skills of the physicist. There are opportunities to specialise in various physics topics. In the fourth year, you'll work on your choice of research project, often working alongside a world-class research group. Lab work links to what you learn in lectures. In the first and second years we devote a whole module each semester to experiments and training. You'll learn how to present results, analyse data and assess errors. Computer programming is an essential part of academic and industrial research. We teach in a variety of languages including Matlab, Python, and Labview. And we'll show you how to use Excel to analyse data. We encourage you take part in field trips throughout your course. You could find yourself investigating dark matter 1km underground at Boulby Mine or 2,400m above sea level at the observatory in the Canary Islands. We also send students to CERN in Geneva, for visits and on work placements
