Course details
Course UCAS code: F3W3
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
**This degree is professionally accredited by the Institute of Physics. As well as your main Imperial degree (BSc), you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the Royal College of Science (ARCS) on completion of this course.** This specialist course, taught jointly by Imperial and the Royal College of Music, enables you to achieve a degree level education in both physics and music performance and prepares you for a professional career in either field. You study all the core material from our standard three-year BSc Physics course, as well as some optional modules, to ensure that you graduate as a fully qualified physicist. At the same time, you will complete the main performance elements of the Royal College of Music's BMus degree on one principal instrument. Due to the demanding workload, the course is spread out over four years. Physics at Imperial covers a broad range of topics in both fundamental and applied physics. All of our physics courses follow the same core curriculum for the first two years. This gives you a good grounding in physics, mathematics and experimental methods, and prepares you for advanced study in later years. Topics include: - Mathematics - Mechanics - Electromagnetism - Quantum physics - Relativity - Optics - Thermodynamics A wide range of optional modules is available as you progress through the course, many of which are directly linked to the research of our nine internationally-recognised research groups so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. Research in our Department has contributed to ground-breaking discoveries in many different fields, from astrophysics to quantum optics and laser science. This freedom to tailor the course to your interests allows you to continue with a broad physics education or specialise in a particular area such as theoretical physics or plasma physics. Current areas covered in year three include: - Astrophysics - Medical imaging - Plasma physics - Cosmology - Laser technology - X-rays and ultrasound - Nuclear diagnostics and MRI All our courses include a substantial final-year project, usually within one of our research groups. Practical work is an important part of the Physics curriculum at Imperial, and you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities as well as data collected from major experiments such as CERN. You will also gain a solid understanding of how to use computers as tools to help model and understand the physics of complicated phenomena. This includes using computers to make advanced calculations and analyse data, and how to use the programming language Python.
