Course summary

This four-year degree expands on the Physics with Space Science BSc to prepare you for high-level entry into industry. It’s also a solid base for pursuing PhD research.As a Physics with Space Science student you will acquire an appreciation of the scope and impact of modern physics and the use of mathematics, computing and experimentation to solve important real world problems, and develop specialised knowledge of space science.All our Physics students study the same core of fundamental physics and maths, based on Institute of Physics (IOP) 'core of physics' material. This includes classical mechanics, waves and fields, electromagnetism, special relativity, thermodynamics, quantum and atomic physics.By choosing the Physics with Space Science degree you will study these alongside specialist space science options and take part in research projects covering the major areas of space science and technology research. We have one of the largest campus-based space research centres in Europe, and the space science and technology options that you will study are based on the research we do. This includes a strong involvement in the BepiColombo mission to Mercury and detector design and development for satellites like the joint US-UK-Italian ‘Swift’, a remarkable observatory designed to study the most powerful explosions in the Universe.What's the difference?Our three-year BSc degrees provide an excellent route to a very wide range of careers in industry and businessOur four-year MPhys degrees are aimed at students considering a career or further training in scientific researchTransfer between BSc and MPhys degrees is possible during your first and second years (subject to meeting the required end-of-year mark). It is also possible to transfer between different Physics degrees as long as you have taken the required number of options. Staff in the School will be available to offer help and advice.If you want to, you can spend your third year studying abroad at one of our partner institutions or working on an industrial placement (eligibility is dependent on your academic performance in Years 1 and 2). Alternatively, you can opt to continue studying at the University and complete your degree in four years.
