Course Summary:
At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too. Physics is a fundamental, curiosity-driven science, that has applications in many other areas of science and a vast range of industries from telecommunications through to medicine and power generation. You will gain an understanding of the subject fundamentals, including quantum mechanics, relativity and electromagnetism, and apply this knowledge to solve problems, plan investigations, analyse results and to report and present your work. Your course will be informed by the research interests of staff: primarily astrophysics and condensed matter physics, all of whom contribute to the teaching programme. Regular laboratory sessions enable you to investigate unfamiliar phenomena and develop valuable transferable skills such as scientific writing, programming and presentation. We operate an open-door policy that gives excellent and flexible access to staff in seeking advice and feedback. Our Single Honours Physics programme builds upon, and then goes beyond, the core topics defined by the UK Institute of Physics to provide both breadth and depth of study, with an additional emphasis on mathematics and computing as tools for physical problem-solving. A Physics degree from Keele will prepare you for many different careers. Employers value versatile, numerate graduates who can analyse, investigate and communicate. You could take up roles as a research scientist, medical physicist, geophysicist, software engineer, or teacher; take on roles that are not directly related to physics such as in management or public services; or you might branch out to become a science writer, chartered accountant or IT consultant. Single Honours Physics is also ideal preparation for further study; many of our graduates go on to physics-related master's degrees or perform research at a doctoral level.

With the largest campus in the UK, Keele University easily manages to fit everything that a student may need into a short walk away. But if do you need to go into the local towns, buses are available every 20 minutes that go all around the local areas. Because there are no large cities on your doorstep, the SU works tirelessly to put on amazing nights, including the 'Flirt' nights which are always popular.

    It has been very enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend Keele to anyone who wants a quieter and friendly campus.
