Join a University ranked in the UK top five for Physics research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning.

Our four-year Physics with Industry course includes a year gaining hands-on paid experience in industry.

A year spent in industry can be a life-changing and rewarding experience. It can help you hone your skills in project management, teamwork and communication. It can also provide invaluable insights into commercial pressures and real-world applied science.

Recently, our students have worked for a wide range of employers, including: the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy; the Government Statistical Service; Malvern Panalytical; Airbus; JP Morgan; Sharp; Rolls-Royce; and the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

During your year in industry, you will continue to study core physics via distance learning. This is to prepare you for your final-year project or dissertation once you are back at the University.

Our students' final-year projects address questions at the frontier of our research fields. The most successful have been published in scientific journals.

Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment post-study. This is a testament to the value that employers place on the transferable skills that you will gain on this course.
