Undergraduate courses

We offer a range of physics degrees. They include opportunities to study abroad, complete a year-long work placement or specialise in astrophysics, particle physics, theoretical physics or medical physics.

Undergraduate students

BSc or MPhys?

MPhys courses come with a final year of research training, where you'll work in the lab with a team of professional scientists on an unanswered question in physics. They're the best route for students who are thinking about a career in scientific research.


These courses are all accredited by the Institute of Physics, so you’ll cover the key topics that every physicist needs to understand: mechanics, waves, optics, relativity, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, quantum physics and more.


But there’s always flexibility to choose from a wide range of optional modules too, so you can tailor your degree to your interests, your career goals and the global challenges you want to help solve.
