Physics and Astronomy

Discover our physics degrees and astronomy courses. We offer undergraduate, Masters and PhD degrees.

We’re at the forefront of physics and astronomy: developing next-generation quantum technology devices, working on the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, and understanding the origins and evolutions of our universe. Our research underpins your teaching, from the mysteries of the quantum all the way up to the large-scale structures in our cosmos.

You’ll have access to the latest equipment, including a rooftop optical, radio, and muon telescope. You’ll have opportunities to work alongside our world-leading faculty on ground-breaking discoveries, through your final-year project and various research placement opportunities. You’ll be part of a close community – our lively Physics Society arranges regular social events. Our building is a real hub of activity. You’ll have all your practical sessions in our modern teaching laboratories. Outside the classroom, you can study or catch up with your friends in our popular student spaces.
