    Physicists seek to answer the big questions: Can the conditions that existed a few billionths of a second after the Big bang be recreated in the lab? How do fundamental constituents of matter such as quarks and leptons interact? How did the Universe begin? And can we understand what space and time are made of?


    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.
