A place for Pascale
When did you know Physics at Lancaster University was the place for you?
When I visited, I felt so at home, it was so welcoming and everyone was so enthusiastic and friendly, plus the facilities were great, I could see myself living and studying here.
What made the facilities so great?
The newly refurbished Physics Department has lots of study spaces including computer rooms and laboratories. They’re perfect for getting work done between lectures, and the open-door policy means that if you’re stuck on a worksheet you can find lecturers outside of teaching hours to get help. It’s also in a central position on campus, meaning you never have to walk too far to get to a different lecture theatre throughout the day.
What is your favourite aspect of your course?
I’ve most enjoyed the astrophysics modules, as well as the coding which is something I’ve found out that I’m quite good at that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. I really like all the study space in the Department, it makes it much easier to sit with your friends and work through coursework.
What are you going to do after your degree?
I want to stay in academia and do research. Lancaster is helping me by letting me know about all the internships I can apply for as well as hosting some within the Department and supporting all my applications
