Master the logic, rigour and proof of mathematics alongside the universal principles of physics to prepare you for a wide range of careers.
Department of Physics
We offer courses and perform research in physics and astrophysics.
We offer projects over a broad spectrum of subject areas. Projects are available as part of Centres for Doctoral Training as well as on an individual basis.
Our research covers a wide spectrum of activities, from fundamental physics to technological applications.
A new project is testing a prototype optical microscope, made from a 3D-printed plastic frame, that costs just £30.
An international team of scientists have captured rare gamma ray bursts in unprecedented detail, unravelling the long-standing mystery of what powers them.
Dr Marcin Mucha-Kruczyński has won an Institute of Physics award for his pioneering work on graphene.
Our broad selection of exciting, cutting-edge courses satisfy all areas of interest, preparing students not only for a career in physics but many other fields as well.
Our diversity as a department is reflected through the rich variety of research conducted by our six Research Groups and Centres encompassing physics on the smallest nanoscales to the most energetic processes in the Universe.
Our department is a friendly, welcoming and dynamic community that will shape your university experience and help you achieve your full potential.
