Physics

As physicists, we’re passionate about understanding the world around us. From the origins of galaxies and dark matter, to developing ultra-fast lasers and exploring the sub-atomic world, we seek to understand how the world works, and to harness this understanding to improve lives.

Our physics courses put you on a fascinating path of scientific discovery, with topics spanning the breadth of this diverse subject.

Home to a range of state-of-the-art facilities, including a student observatory and high performance computer facilities, we have a strategic partnership with the National Physical Laboratory and host world-leading research groups. These include our Astrophysics Research Group, our Photonics and Quantum Sciences Group and our Radiation and Medical Physics Group.
