Undergraduate courses starting in 2021

Physics is ‘the science of everything’. You’ll explore the fundamental laws of physics underpinning the universe, from subatomic to cosmological scales.

Physicists search for the universal principles underlying diverse natural phenomena. You’ll develop a strong understanding of the fundamental theories of physics, and will also investigate physical phenomena through lab experiments, projects, mathematical modelling and computer simulations.

Our courses reflect the wide range of research activities in the Department. You’ll learn about nano-engines and organic electronics, investigate quantum optics and the properties of graphene, and explore the structure and evolution of the Universe.

‘I think I learnt to be a physicist in the undergraduate labs probably more than anywhere else.’
