Why physics at Sussex?

Andrew's perspective

Andrew Trim

'Physics is one of the most fundamental subjects. It allows us to understand weird and wonderful phenomena as well as allowing us to understand events which occur every day. It's one of the most challenging subjects to study and requires lots of work and effort, but as a result is also the most rewarding.

'Physics sets you up for after you finish university with a large skill base for many workplaces. This is a reason physicists are wanted by employers. It's a really great subject and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.'
