First Degree in Physics

InformationCourse/CS accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).
This degree ensures that students acquire knowledge of classic and quantum physics to underpin the development of explanatory models and the understanding of a vast range of phenomena. It provides up-to-date training in the methods and experimental techniques including the design and implementation of experimental projects. It also furnishes expertise in mathematics, numerical and computational techniques. Furthermore, it enables students to acquire competence in specialised areas of physics, furnishing a solid foundation for continued scientific or educational studies.

Employment Prospects

Intermediate level technical jobs (in governmental laboratories, schools, quality control, hospitals, financial services, insurance companies, industries, IT); continued, second cycle studies in physics or other areas of engineering (medical physics, biophysics, environmental science, astronomy, resource management, etc.) or teacher training (with a specialisation in physics and chemistry education).
