**Why choose this course**
Our BSc and MPhys Physics with Astronomy courses open the door to a wealth of opportunities in industry, academia, finance, data science and the technology industry.
Weâre home to fantastic astronomy facilities, including our own teaching and outreach telescopes that youâll use to get hands-on observation experience, as well as high performance computing and GPU clusters.
Youâll be taught by leading researchers in exciting fields of research such as the nature of black holes and dark matter.
The National Student Survey 2018 placed our physics courses in the top 10 in the UK for overall satisfaction.
**What you will study**
Our Physics with Astronomy courses will teach you the core elements of traditional physics â from particle physics, to quantum mechanics. Youâll then specialise in astrophysics, studying how stars, planets, and galaxies evolve.
Youâll be able to carry out a research project within our research groups or in internationally-leading research laboratories. MPhys (Master of Physics) students can also take research placements at major international astronomy laboratories.
You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MPhys, a direct route to a masters qualification. If you study for an MPhys, youâll spend a year doing research before returning for a final year of masters-level modules. You may have the option to switch to a BSc or MPhys during your studies.
