We offer a range of flexible degree courses that are undertaken over four (MPhys and MSci) or three (BSc) years. You can graduate with one of three different degree qualifications - MPhys, MSci and BSc.


Lancaster University, in partnership with the Open University, offers a flexible route to a degree in physics for prospective students whose circumstances prevent them from obtaining traditional qualifications such as A levels.
