It can easily be argued that physics is the most important of the sciences in shaping the world around us today. Technologies such as the simple lightbulb to advanced technologies such as the mobile phone would simply not exist without this subject. Physics goes much further than this though as it is a discipline that seeks to determine the laws of nature itself.
Motivated by a desire to reflect and take advantage of Loughborough's research strengths in quantum physics, condensed matter, statistical physics and the physics of materials, the core Physics BSc (Hons) course has recently been revised from the ground up and structured to provide what we believe will be an exciting and academically outstanding course.
The Physics degree at Loughborough offers maximum flexibility to study optional modules from our suite of physics courses. If you want to study the widest breadth of subjects, or do not yet wish to decide on a particular focus, then this is the course for you.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
Depending on the nature of the material, some modules are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examination (for example 25% coursework and 75% examination), whilst other modules are assessed by 100% coursework or 100% by examination.
Coursework is based on a variety of tasks including individual essays, projects, laboratory work, contribution in tutorials, group work and presentations.
