What will I learn?

**About Physics at the University of Nottingham**We have a proud history of learning and innovation. Research undertaken within the School of Physics and Astronomy, by Professor Sir Peter Mansfield, was recognised with a 2003 Nobel Prize for the invention of Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanners. This technology has already helped more than half a billion people worldwide. More recently, our use of quantum technologies to understand how the brain works is changing the way that neurological conditions are detected and treated. Our research activity spans the breadth of modern-day physics: from nanoscience, ultracold atoms, to ground-breaking investigations into dark energy and theoretical cosmology. In recognition of our international reputation in these areas, we are ranked join third in the UK for research quality in physics (Research Excellence Framework 2014). You will gain hands-on experience through research projects and the opportunity for paid summer internships in the School.Our courses offer a wide range of optional modules, so you can explore new areas of physics and specialise in the ones that interest you the most, and learn from experts in those fields. What’s more, there is flexibility to transfer between most physics courses after the first year.We have received the highest rating of ‘Gold’ for teaching excellence (Teaching Excellence Framework 2017). Some of our teaching staff share their love of physics with budding scientists worldwide through the popular Sixty Symbols YouTube channel. Our unique, student centred MSci course offers innovative teaching methods, with few to no exams in the final year.Employers of our graduates include Accenture, EDF Energy, Jaguar Land Rover, and various NHS Trusts. Roles include Trainee Clinical Scientist, Medical Physicist, Systems Engineer, Data Analyst and Software Development Engineer. Many of our students go on to further study at PhD level in the UK and overseas. **Physics with Nanoscience MSci**This option draws from the the expertise of the internationally-recognised Nottingham Nanoscience Research Group. Tailored modules such as Nanophysics and Imaging and Manipulating Nanostructures will develop your specialist expertise in this field. Through our practical learning, you will gain key skills in microscopy and imaging nanostructures.Our unique fourth year will develop your professional and transferrable skills with immersive, student-centred learning. You will focus on fewer but more specialised areas and complete a year-long research project. Under the guidance of our expert staff you will benefit from a range of learning styles. These include group work, projects, delivering seminars and independent learning.
