The special blend of physics taught in our Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics programmes reflects the outstanding nuclear physics research that we conduct at Surrey. On the course you will gain a thorough understanding of all the core elements of traditional physics – for example particle physics, atoms and molecules, and quantum mechanics – and study topics such as detection and measurement in astronomy and experimental nuclear physics. You can also switch between any of our specialist Physics degrees during your first year.
Many of our students choose to take an integrated Research Year or Professional Training placement year, giving them invaluable work and research experience and a real head start whether they enter the job market or continue to postgraduate studies.

Application deadline details:
University life in Guildford is really great, the town and campus are warm and inviting, with a nice intimate vibe. Everyone here is so friendly and looks out for everyone else, it’s so refreshing. There's plenty to do it in the city, bear in mind some clubs can charge a fair bit on weekends, so stick to the student nights. The teaching is really strong, with approachable staff, good support on your assignments and a great library.
