This course is built around a core of compulsory modules that will give a thorough grounding in physics. In addition to the core focus on physics as detailed under the BSc/MPhys, this course will offer you the opportunity to study at either the University of Toledo in Ohio or the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
We have been sending students to North America for their third year for over 10 years, and all have found it a positive and rewarding experience that helped them build confidence and widen their cultural experience.
This course is built around a core of compulsory modules that will give a thorough grounding in physics, in addition there are optional modules that allow you to add a specialism to your portfolio of knowledge and skills, such as astrophysics or PC interfacing. You will also take part in group projects that will allow you to develop your team working, problem solving, communication and presentation skills, all desirable within the industrial and research communities.
For the third year of your degree you will have the choice of studying at either the University of Toledo in Ohio or the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We have been sending students to north America for their third year for over 10 years, and all have found it a positive and rewarding experience that helped them build confidence and widen their cultural experience.
You can also opt to take an industrial placement year in between the second and third year of your course. You will arrange your placement with our support. This has a number of benefits: you will improve your employment prospects after graduation, you get to see the physics you have learned in action, they are often paid positions, and many of our industrial placement students ultimately improve their degree classification over their second year results to receive top class degrees.

Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
