Degree courses

We have a range of 3-year BSc and 4-year Integrated Masters (MPhys) degree courses, which provide flexibility and the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of the science.

All of our degree courses will give you a solid grounding in physics and mathematics, with options that allow you to pursue your own interests as you go through the course. You will have plenty of opportunity to follow your own interests and develop your personal skills and experience, through the final year project, study abroad programme and industrial placements.

Over 95% of our 2016 MPhys graduates achieved either a first or upper second class degree. Watch a video of our students talking about what they like about their course.
