We offer a variety of Physics degree programmes leading to the degree of BSc (3 years) or of MPhys (4 years). The standard 'Physics' programme allows the most flexibility, giving you the chance to concentrate on a certain area (e.g. astrophysics) or to just give yourself a taste of all the major aspects of physics.
There is also the opportunity to join a degree programme which places emphasis on a particular area of physics. We offer both a 'Physics with Astrophysics' programme as well as a 'Theoretical Physics' one. You may also choose a joint degree, which allows you to study physics alongside a related subject, such as Mathematics, Philosophy or Business Management.
An optional 'Year in Europe' is available in many cases. All of our degree programmes are accredited by the Institute of Physics.
