Course Introduction

Physicists play an increasingly important role in the modern world. The skills developed through a study of physics are highly valued in a large number of key employment sectors including energy, construction, technology, communications and finance. On a more fundamental level, physics is essential to our understanding of how the universe works: from the behaviour of the smallest elementary particles to the movement of stars and galaxies. Theory and observations are vital to developing answers to questions about the universe and the inherent nature of matter, energy, space and time. Our areas of research strength are broad and include particle physics, astronomy, condensed matter and theoretical physics, allowing you to gain a degree with a wide knowledge of physics or to specialise in a particular area.
