This is for you if… you are interested in the study of matter and energy on all scales – from the sub-atomic to the size of the visible Universe.
About this Course
Physics is the most fundamental of the sciences, and as a physics student at Leicester you will acquire an appreciation of the scope and impact of modern physics and the use of mathematics, computing and experimentation to solve important real-world problems.
You will study core topics in physics and mathematics including atoms and quanta, light and matter, and electricity and magnetism. The laboratory programme introduces a broad range of practical techniques. Option courses include particle physics, nanophysics and great experiments.
The core programme builds upon the First Year foundations and includes relativity and particles, waves and fields, condensed matter physics and electromagnetism. Laboratory work develops to incorporate an increasing range of practical skills. Option courses cover topics such as fractals and chaos, biophysics and quantum devices.
Core topics include quantum physics, atoms and nuclei, radiation and matter and plasma physics. A semester-long pair project provides you with research experience in a subject of your choice. Optional material includes a range of practical workshops and over twenty option courses in subjects such as elementary particles, further relativity and ultrasound and nuclear medicine. Courses on management and business skills are also offered.
