Course Summary:
"Physics is an enabling discipline showing how to do things thought impossible and helping others refine their approach. Physics is to the rest of science what machine tools are to engineering." Sir John Pendry "Physics allows us to write with a piece of chalk on a blackboard the very structure of the universe and the shape of it. I mean… What's not to love?" Dara O'Briain Physics studies how the universe works - from the smallest atomic nucleus to the largest galaxy. It includes conceptual challenges such as quantum theory, relativity and chaos theory, and lies at the heart of most modern technology - for example the computer, the laser and the Internet. The Department of Physics and Astronomy has the highest teaching standards and is recognised nationally as being one of the leading centres for research. Physics at Queen's obtained an excellent grade in the last subject-based Teaching Quality Assessment exercise, while in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise 50 per cent of the scientific research carried out by staff was internationally excellent or world-leading. This strong link between research and teaching in Physics at Queen's means our graduates obtain one of the best degrees available for understanding our recent scientific advances, and playing a part in our increasingly technological society.

I loved my time here at Queen’s, it was a really great university. Don’t worry about Belfast, I never had any trouble here and the uni do a lot to make sure that new students feel safe. It’s about as safe as any big city, but there’s loads of good stuff for students to do here. The locals are also really friendly too, so don’t be afraid! The course was also amazing, my tutors were fantastic and informative and always available to help me out, and the library was a great place to study and hang out. Try Belfast!

    Good Uni with lots of opportunities and good teaching. You need to invest yourself in it to get the most out of it as with anywhere but there's lots to get involved with.
