Hands-on learning

If you didn’t undertake the Physics in Schools or Group Industrial Project module in your third year, you have the option of taking either the Advanced Physics in Schools module or Advanced Group Industrial Project module in your fourth year. These are exciting modules that apply physics in a real-world context.

For your final-year project, you’ll work as part of an internationally-recognised research team or alongside a leading researcher on an open-ended project. Your project will relate to a current active field of research. You’ll plan and organise your work, follow it through and present your results. This is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the latest physics research and many of our students have had their final-year projects published.
