The fundamental ideas of physics, matter, force and energy, are the basis of all other sciences and most of our modern technologies. You will study quantum phenomena, electricity, mechanics, materials, waves, fields, energy, nuclear and thermal physics. You will be taught through a variety of methods including experiential, hands-on laboratory work, demonstration, small group and one-to-one discussions, problem solving exercises and examination preparation.
What opportunities will this lead to?
Many Physics students go on to study Physics and Engineering at university and progress into a wide variety of jobs where a technical, analytical or problem solving mind is required. Physicists span many industries from transport and aviation to the military and research labs.
