A world-class reputation for research and teaching

Physicists and astronomers explore the limits of our universe, develop the knowledge to inform our understanding of the world we live in and advance our technical capabilities.

Here at Leeds we offer a range of BSc and MPhys degrees, all accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP), where you will learn about physics in breadth and depth from our excellent academic staff, with opportunities to get involved in front-line research.

Our wide range of modules allow you to follow the subjects that interest you most and that match your future ambitions. You can also broaden your horizons by spending a year studying abroad or working in industry.

You will be taught by active, successful researchers, who incorporate the latest research in their teaching, especially in the later years of your degree course.
