Durham is one of the leading physics and astronomy departments in the UK, enrolling around 170 students each year. The dedication to our teaching and research consistently puts us high up in all the league tables. While studying here you will benefit from the buzz and creative environment of a large research department and join a dynamic and focused intellectual community. Our research ranges from fundamental elementary particle physics and cosmology to more applied topics in which we collaborate closely with industry.We offer degrees in Physics, Physics and Astronomy, and Theoretical Physics, all of which are accredited by the Institute of Physics. Our course structures have been designed to provide flexibility in your final choice of degree course. The three-year BSc degree is aimed at those mainly interested in a degree in Physics as a preparation for a career not necessarily in the Physics area.Our four-year MPhys degrees will suit those looking for professional training leading to research in physics or a physics-related career. The first year of the BSc and MPhys degree courses in Physics, Physics and Astronomy, and Theoretical Physics is identical, and it is possible to select modules in your second year such that you need not make a firm choice of course until the end of the second year.**Year 1**Foundations of Physics is the main lecture module in the first year and is complemented with a practical laboratory module, including an introduction to programming. Two mathematics modules are taken in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. There is a further module of choice, with Introduction to Astronomy proving to be very popular.**Year 2**Core modules:Foundations of Physics 2A/2BMathematical Methods in PhysicsLaboratory Skills and Electronics.Additional topics include Theoretical Physics 2 (the transition from classical to quantum mechanics), Stars and Galaxies (an exploration of astrophysics), and Physics in Society.At the end of the year, you need to decide your degree title, choosing between:BSc Physics (F300)MPhys Physics (F301)MPhys Physics and Astronomy (FF3N)MPhys Theoretical Physics (F344).**Year 3**Besides core courses in Foundations of Physics 3A/3B and Physics Problem-Solving (which includes a computing project), there is a wide choice of topics, for example:Planets and CosmologyTheoretical PhysicsPhysics into schoolsMaths WorkshopTeam ProjectLaboratory ProjectA module taken in another department (subject to approval).Your options will have an emphasis on theoretical physics.**Year 4**A research-based project is undertaken in one of the Department’s wide range of research groups. Optional lecture course topics have included in the past: advanced and theoretical astrophysics (including general relativity and galaxy formation), biological and nanophysics, laser physics, advanced quantum physics and particle physics.Your options will have an emphasis on theoretical physics.**Placement**You may be able to take a work placement. Find out more.**Study abroad**The experience of having lived independently abroad can be very rewarding in terms of employability and of personal development. For this reason, students are encouraged to apply during their degree for a year-long placement with one of the Physics Department's or the University's international partners, either in replacement of the third year of study within an MPhys degree or as an additional year of study. Students may study in English at some of the partner universities, whereas at others foreign language skills are essential. Students are fully supported by the Department both during the application process and during the year abroad.
