Find Out What Matters
Through investigating the nature of patterns, particles, and distant galaxies, the fields of astrophysics, mathematics, and physics help us to better understand the world around us.
Our research-informed degrees are designed to provide a fundamental education in these interrelated fields, and we aim to provide a friendly, approachable culture in which students can learn. You will be encouraged to apply your imagination, creativity, and rigour to the solution of various problems in these areas.
Physics with Astrophysics
Our Physics with Astrophysics degree aims to equip students with the reasoning skills and analytic tools to tackle problems with no known answers. Astrophysics provides training in space science, Earth observation, and physics of extreme conditions, and this degree aims to develop students' abilities to think on their feet and to think outside the box. The course offers the opportunity to study fundamental and applied physics with astrophysics alongside rigorous mathematics and computational training.
This degree programme combines theory with practical laboratory work and substantial research training. Throughout the course, there are extensive opportunities for you to hone practical skills in preparation for a career in a variety of sectors. During the first year, you can benefit from an additional three hours per week of problem-solving tutorials. The programme includes a combination of compulsory and optional modules covering all components of core physics, as defined by the Institute of Physics.
Our Mathematics degree enables you to study the core topics of mathematics to gain a thorough grounding in analytical and numerical methods, practical scientific skills, and research techniques. You will have the opportunity to develop transferable communication, problem-solving, and decision-making skills throughout your studies. Teaching is delivered by academic members of staff who are active researchers in their fields, and their research directly informs teaching at all levels.
Integrated Master's Programmes
Each of these courses are four years in length and combine undergraduate and postgraduate study that allows you to gain an advanced technical knowledge in your field, whether you plan to work in industry or academia.
