    Description

    Our distinctive MPhys Physics will build upon the BSc Physics programme and give you a more advanced understanding of physics. It is designed for students who intend to become professional physicists and allows extra specialisation and the development of key professional skills.

    A key outcome is a project in your final year. You will work on the project with one of your peers and have access to the expertise of a nominated member of academic staff at the top of their profession.

    You don’t have to choose between the three-year course and the four-year course when you first enrol. However, we generally recommend that you enrol initially for the four-year MPhys. As well as studying our core physics courses you can choose two options a year including the option courses on our specialist MPhys degree programmes.

    The MPhys Physics programme includes the following degree programmes:

    • F303 MPhys Particle Physics
    • F303 MPhys Physics with a Year of Experimental Research
    • F303 MPhys Physics with Industrial Placement

    Career opportunities

    Employability is embedded into modules from the first year onwards and right from the first lecture. We explain the degree skills which are being taught throughout the modules and offer a number of optional employability modules.

    We place great importance on the development of graduate skills vital for future employment by adding transferrable skills into learning and teaching.

    Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from medical physics, scientific journalism, teaching, law and medical research.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
