    BSc Physics with Nanotechnology


The BSc Physics with Nanotechnology degree offers specialist modules which introduce the quantum physics phenomena associated with the nanoscale and nanotechnology developments. The specialisation is developed in several modules over the second and third year of study. It aims to introduce basic principles through to latest developments in device technology. Practical aspects are also covered with an experimental based module making use of advanced teaching instrumentation in the area of scanning probe microscopy.


A levels: grades ABB-BBB to include Maths and Physics or equivalent

Welsh Baccalaureate: Pass acceptable as equivalent to an A grade A level

Scottish Highers: ABBCC to include Mathematics grade B

IB: 33-32 with at least 6 in HL Maths and 5 in HL Physics

IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent English test

Access to HE (Science): Pass with Distinction (24 Distinctions to include 3 in Mathematics and 3 in Physics, plus 15 Merits at Level 3)

BTEC: DDM plus A-level grade A in Physics. Applicants will also be expected to demonstrate mathematics equivalent to A-level grade B or above.

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.
