Course summary

Physics is an inherently international activity, carried out by scientists in institutions throughout the world, sometimes competing and often collaborating. This degree will give you an early introduction to this key aspect of physics. It offers you the chance to combine in-depth training as a physicist with the experience of living and working as a researcher overseas.During your third year overseas, the programme you follow will be agreed with a tutor at Bristol and the working language will be English. You will be based at a partner university abroad, spending most of your time taking advantage of opportunities available locally. This will usually mean carrying out a full-time research project, as part of a research team at the host university – this might include nanophysics in Brazil, astrophysics in Canada or particle physics in the US. Alternatively, you can take taught courses through Bristol's Global Opportunities programme. You will continue to study core physics via distance learning in readiness for returning to Bristol for your final year.The course gives you the opportunity to develop a physicist's broad range of skills – including problem solving, numeracy and communication – and to supplement these with the experimental, theoretical and analytical skills needed for a career in research and industry.You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning society. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment, a testament to the value that employers place on the transferable skills that you gain on this course.This programme is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
