Choosing Your Degree
All our degrees provide you with a comprehensive education and cover all the general and specialist skills valued for further study and employers in the private and public sectors. We offer a choice of physics degrees at the 4-year master’s (MPhys) and 3-year bachelor’s (BSc) level.
The different degree specialisations share a common first year, which makes it easy to settle on your preference. In the subsequent years, the degrees share a common physics core which covers all key areas of the discipline. The degree-scheme specific labs and projects, equip you with specialist skills, while the wide range of options lets you explore advanced topics and tailor the degree to your interests.
The additional year in the MPhys degrees contains an extended research project, which is ideal if you are planning to enter into higher research degrees (MSc or PhD).
We also offer a BSc/MSci degree in Theoretical Physics with Mathematics, jointly with the Mathematics Department, as well as one of the best developed Study Abroad exchange programmes, which allows MPhys and MSci students to spend their third year studying at a partner institution overseas.
We welcome applicants with alternative qualifications and offer a unique Open Plus programme for those not meeting traditional requirements. Further details can be found on our website.
