Welcome to Physics.
Physics is often described as the most fundamental, yet fascinating, division of all the natural sciences. Its theories endeavour to describe behaviour from the smallest building blocks of matter to the vast universe and everything in between.
A thriving and growing Department, we aim to provide an academically stimulating and supportive environment for all our students.
All of our courses offer the opportunity of studying overseas or spending a year on industrial placement, something that employers consider extremely valuable.
High student satisfaction
The excellence of the student experience is reflected in the National Student Survey, with almost 90% of students satisfied with their course.
Research that matters
85% of the research conducted in the department is at an international standard and 15% is considered world leading (RAE 2008).
