Undergraduate Physics Degrees

We offer a range of accredited physics degrees including integrated master's degrees.

Taught by experts

Physics teaching is done by leading researchers in the subject. We're a friendly department, with a very low student to staff ratio. Our academics get to know each of their students individually.

Our academics' specialisms give you access to diverse fields of study, including:

  • cosmology and relativity
  • quantum physics on macroscopic scales
  • next-generation Gallium Nitride electronics for green technologies
  • understanding exotic quantum matter
  • development of new photovoltaic technologies


Access high-specification physics facilities

You'll get hands-on experience with specialist equipment and work in our high-spec facilities. This helps you develop practical skills for a wide range of physical science careers.
