Hi all need some sound advice! I have got offers from the following unis/courses

Cardiff uni for a Physics BSc
Swansea for Physics BSc with foundation year
Aber for Physics Bsc and MPhys with planetary and space physics
Salford Physics BSc

Now here is my predicament, which would be my best choice in terms of career etc. I really want to do the planetary and space physics at Aberystwyth especially as you get the chance to go to Svalbard but how would a degree with the content of physics and planety with space physics effect my future career, i dont wish to specialise in Physics as a future career i would like to but i know it can be a very competetive field but it is my overall employment opportunities i am concerned with e.g. how will my chances for a career be effected if i study the Mphys compared to one of the BSc's which are solely focused on Physics.

Thanks for any advice.

The MPhys is a better degree, simple as that - it can only improve your prospects in terms of research studentships and employment. Aber have an excellent physics department so as long as you are okay with the small size of the place then you'll be fine.

i would go to swasnea im going there to do physics. a foundation year is good its about getting better at a subject, if you find the year a bit easy then go to the library and look at year1 stuff so your ahead wen you go the next year then if you want to do a masters you can change as late as the 2nd year thats wat im doing (accepted for bsc physics) i live in swasnea now and i can say its a really nice location it has a student village, been there ,social life is AMAZING my brother went to cardiff uni to do physics its really good there too but hes says the only downfall is that the uni was spread out and not in 1 campus so the social life is not as good as swansea (swansea uni is one of the best for particle physics) and personally i would do a degree in physics and then generalise at a later stage as its hard to get a job with a more specific subject....
good luck!
