Physics Courses


BSc or MPhys?

We offer Physics and Physics with Acoustics as three year Bachelor of Science (BSc) with Honours or four year Master of Physics (MPhys) degrees. We encourage students to apply initially for the MPhys degree with the option of switching to the 3 year degree after the end of the 2nd year.

Routes into Physics

For those who do not have traditional entry requirements, you may be interested in other ways of joining an undergraduate Physics degree:

  • OpenPlus - this Open University (OU) scheme allows people with no formal entry requirements to get a degree in four years; two years part time study at the OU is followed by two years full time study at Salford.
  • Foundation Year - students who have successfully completed the BSc Physics with Foundation Year (a one year course for which entry requirements are lower than the equivalent degree without a foundation year) can transfer to the first year of one of our BSc or MPhys Physics degrees.
