    I understand what those terms mean, but what I want to know is if I can do an Undergraduate/Masters degree in computer science, then change to do a Masters/PhD in Physics.
    Some people have said I can do that and some people said I can't.

    Its probably a no, but I'd appreciate the advice

    It depends on so many factors. Most likely not though. You should contact each university seperately as theyll all have different answers.
    Thanks much appreciated

    Switching from Physics to CS is a lot easier than the other way round imo. But then again, one is a 340 year old discipline and the other is some 70 years old or so.

    I'd say possible, but I have no idea honestly. Both principles are Maths-heavy, so you've got that going. If you can convince the particular university that you know your physics at a good level, maybe did a Masters dissertation on some physics-related topic through CS, then possibly.
