    MPhys Physics with a year abroad


The MPhys Physics with a year abroad is a five-year degree scheme intended primarliy for those wishing to become professional physicists. In this scheme students spend their first two years of study in Swansea before studying for one year in a university outside the U.K. Students then return to Swansea to complete their degree


A levels: grades AAB-ABB to include Maths and Physics with a grade A in either Maths or Physics, or equivalent

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

Scottish Highers: ABBCC to include Mathematics grade A

IB: 34-33 with at least 6 in HL Maths and 6 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: DDD-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.
