Our internationally renowned researchers work on everything from astrophysics and major projects at CERN to quantum engineering and smart technologies.

Studying Physics at Bristol is an amazing experience. The university is one of the best in the country with excellent facilities, which offer us a wide range of opportunities. What sets the School of Physics at the University of Bristol apart is the friendly academic staff and the huge number of research opportunities.

Physics staff stand for a group photo. There are around 100 members of staff. They are stood on grass and there are trees in the background. Equality and diversity

We're committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our students and staff and have a Juno Practitioner Award and an Athena Swan Bronze Award.

Two people perform an experiment behind a table. There is a bowl filled with white smoke, which the person on the right stirs with gloved hands. Both wear goggles. The person stirring also wears a lab coat. Widening Participation

We want everyone to experience the wonder of physics. From talks and demos in schools to hosting our own Festival of Physics here in Bristol, we deliver a whole range of outreach activities.
