Teaching and learning changes for 2020-21

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have made some changes to teaching and learning for some courses in the 2020-21 academic year.

These pages will be updated regularly, so please check back for the latest information about your course.

Some courses pull in expertise from other departments at the University of Sheffield, so that you can study physics in the context of a related discipline and graduate as a specialist.

All of our courses include lots of practical teaching, so that you're fully trained to complete your own research project. There is also the chance to do a Degree with Employment Experience and spend a year working in industry or, on some courses, spend a year studying physics and a top overseas institution.
