Course summary

**Physics underpins everyday life, from the structure of the universe to the smartphone in your hand. The Physics Foundation Year degree course will advance your physics knowledge and skillset, providing basis for further study and entry on to one of our physics degree courses**.Physics is at the heart of modern life. By having the knowledge to discover future technological advances and find applications for scientific discoveries, qualified physicist are driving our future. Our professionally-accredited course is structured to provide you with fundamental and specialist knowledge base ready to build a career in teaching, research or industry.Due to the analytical and problem solving nature of physics, this degree will open up the subject spectrum. You’ll develop an understanding of classical and quantum waves, and properties of matter. You’ll gain advanced knowledge in fields of nuclear and particle physics, Maxwell’s equation and quantum mechanics. You can also choose optional modules in acoustics or nanotechnology.The Foundation Year provides subject knowledge and academic development, so you are confident and able for study on the BSc (Hons) Physics degree course. Along with a broad introduction to the key physics and mathematics topics, this learning pathway helps you to build effective communication and study skills. On successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of your selected degree for the remainder of your course.Learning takes places in our Peel Park campus, minutes from bustling Manchester. Physics can be challenging, so we place great emphasis on small group teaching to make you feel fully supported. You’ll have an immersive experience, taking part in group projects to develop team working, problem solving, and communication and presentation skills. Features• Gain the mathematics and physics skills ready to progress on to our BSc (Hons) Physics degree• Expand your knowledge and understanding in quantum mechanics of atoms, molecules and solids• Build analytical, numerical and computer-based problem-solving skills in Maxwell’s Equations and Wave Optics• Explore classical dynamics, static and dynamic charges, quantum mechanics, fundamentals of relativity and atomic and nuclear physics• Learn the importance of mathematics in a quantitative description of physics, using symbolic computing and programming• Experience computer laboratory sessions to apply numerical methods and techniques frequently encountered in physical and engineering challenges
