Course summary

Physics is the most fundamental science, concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. This means physics-based knowledge can be applied across the depth and breadth of industry.In the context of astronomical phenomena, circumstances may conspire to produce extreme physical conditions such as gravity, pressure, and temperature. We push our understanding of core physics principles, and laws, providing critical new insight to the nature of the universe.The course will increase your understanding of fundamental physics and expand your mathematical skills. You'll study both classical physics and developments in modern physics and gain advanced laboratory skills and hands-on experience with challenging experiments.As you progress through your studies, you'll study modules in astrophysics in more detail such as space physics and astronomy, stars and planetary systems, and galaxies and the universe.In your final year, you'll conduct a personal project which will involve practical experience in a research laboratory. You'll also have the option to take part in dedicated undergraduate research projects from the start of your course.Our high staff-to-student ratio fosters a friendly environment and approachable lecturers.Our Physics Society runs regular social events. They have organised trips to CERN, Munich, and Amsterdam as well as the annual Physics Ball. You can meet with students from all year groups to help guide you through the more challenging aspects of the course.
