Course summary

Course description

The year in industry is a one-year extension of the MPhys Theoretical Physics degree. A year in industry will put your academic studies into context, and improve your skills and your employability.

This course emphasises the use of theoretical and mathematical approaches to understanding the laws of physics. You can choose further mathematics modules, and broaden your experience with project work too.

You'll complete a theoretical or computational project in your third year, and independent directed reading on a theoretical topic of your choice.

In your final year, you can study advanced physics topics in more depth and will choose a research project in an area that interests you.

If you want to study physics, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Physics with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.

Accreditation
Accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of fully meeting the educational requirement for Chartered Physicist.
