The physics course will help you develop thinking and practical skills and apply those in a variety of contexts. Your studies will take you from the very small (such as subatomic particles) to the very large (stars and the wider universe). The physics course develops students’ understanding of the physical laws of our Universe. Each student will gain better and more extensive problem solving skills as they work through theoretical problems and as they perform a variety of experiments. The course will challenge every student, and at the same time inspire their interest in learning as we cover some of the most fascinating concepts in science.
Progression routes: Physics is particularly suitable for those who wish to follow careers in pure or applied science, astrophysics, medical or nuclear physics, maths, engineering, medicine etc.
