Yes, that is the one I am doing. There are computing practicals involved, which in the first term are just how to program in c. Later on there are projects to do in computing, and computing is also involved in your research work in the 4th year of the course.

c (not c++) is involved in the physics degree, in terms of modelling, analysis, and other stuff to do with physics. Don't worry if you don't know it, most people don't. Thats why there are computing practicals.
