LEVEL OF STUDY
A highlight of the placement has been getting the chance to become part of a scientific community and contribute to active research."
Mathematics and Physics MPhys
The academics on my programme know how to spark interest in students – even in an early morning lecture.
Physics BSc (Hons)
The conversation was the quickest ever: “UCAS ID? Grades? Okay, you’re in!”. That was it, end of the story.
While on placement, I’ve become more confident in myself from dealing with a lot of different people, both internally and externally.
Physics with Astronomy with foundation year BSc (Hons)
One of the aspects of the course I most enjoy is the project work because I can take what we’ve learnt, and my outside readings, and apply it to specific subjects that fascinate me.
Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics BSc (Hons)
I learned a lot on placement and, although it was obviously great to increase my technical knowledge, the most important things to me were the soft skills. My time management, concentration over long periods and teamwork definitely improved.
Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics MPhys
If you’re interested in pursuing an academic career, the MPhys is the perfect course because the research year allows you to experience the real-world research environment.
Physics with Astronomy MPhys
I'd definitely recommend doing an MPhys programme. It's the best way to learn your subject, regardless of your future career ambitions.
Physics with Quantum Technologies
I’m excited my final year project will take place at Surrey’s Advanced Technology Institute, which has state-of-the-art equipment used in cutting-edge research.
