    The Department of Physics offers a 4-year Physics with Integrated Foundation Year Degree scheme (F301) which is appropriate for students who are yet to achieve the necessary skills in physics and mathematics. Students undertake this scheme for a variety of reasons, including a lack of appropriate A-level grades in mathematics and physics. It is the acknowledged route to a physics degree for returning mature students. Although students enter into this degree scheme for a wide variety of reasons we are constantly and pleasantly surprised by the performance of students taking this course. We have had many examples of students entering via this scheme and graduating with first class or second class honours degrees.

    Following their successful completion of the foundation year, students may then follow any pathway through the BSc or MPhys courses, with all options available to them. Across all teaching, after this point there is no differentiation between an F301 student and any other.


    A levels: grades CCD or equivalent. A-level Physics and Mathematics are preferred. However, applicants with relevant qualifications or professional experience will also be considered.

    Access to HE (Science): 27 merits including Mathematics and Physics.

    IB: 24 (including 6 in Maths and 7 in Physics at Standard Level.

    BTEC: will be considered depending on subjects studied, and applicants will be expected to demonstrate significant knowledge of Physics and Mathematics well beyond GCSE standard.

    *This course is appropriate for students not having the necessary qualifications to enter the 3 year B.Sc. Degree scheme. Decisions are based on an individual basis by the Admission Tutors.

    All applications will be considered on an individual basis, and we will look at the whole application when deciding whether to make an offer of a place, including: the balance, nature and quality of A-level, AS and GCSE subjects (or equivalent); personal statement and referee’s comments.

    Salidas profesionales

    Physics graduates have a wide range of job opportunities. Employers include academic institutions, government research organisations and industry, including aerospace and defence, education, energy, engineering, instrumentation, manufacturing, oil and gas, science, communication, space exploration and telecommunications. Many physics graduates pursue a career outside physics, ie in consultancy, IT, the environmental industry, financial services, the legal sector, transport and utilities.
