Modern and well-equipped laboratories allow students to gain experience with experimental methods and equipment.

We take great pride in the quality of our teaching and the attainments of our students. The University is one of the top places in the UK to study physics and astronomy, from both a teaching and research perspective.

In the 2020 National Student Survey 96% of our graduates were satisfied overall with our degree courses, split as 92% in Physics and 100% in Astronomy. This independent student survey sees our students consistently expressing high levels of satisfaction.

Flexible study

All of our undergraduate courses have a common first year which allows you to transfer onto a different undergraduate course within the School if you so wish. You can make a decision on the content of your 3rd and 4th year courses at the end of the second year.

This makes for a flexible study programme allowing you to change your mind if you decide that you would rather take one of our other courses once you have started your degree with us.
