Course Summary:
If you want to study physics at Sheffield but you don't have the right A Levels, this is the most direct route. The foundation year gives you the necessary grounding in maths, physics and chemistry. Complete it to the required standard and you're guaranteed a place on one of our degree courses. Physics at Sheffield gives you hands-on experience working with leading academics on real research projects. We teach the IT and programming skills that you'll need for a career in industrial research. And there are plenty of opportunities for fieldwork: investigating dark matter 1km underground at Boulby Mine, or 2,400m above sea level at an observatory in the Canary Islands. We also send students to CERN in Geneva, for work placements and visits. Many of our graduates become research scientists in academia and industry. Others go into aerospace, telecommunications, defence and energy. Employers include Ernst & Young, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Toshiba and the Home Office.

"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.
