What will I learn?

Physics with Theoretical Physics is aimed at students interested in the more mathematical and theoretical aspect of physics. The course provides a solid grounding in all aspects of physics, both theoretical and experimental, although a significant amount of practical work is replaced by lecture courses and project work in theoretical physics. In the first two years, you study the topics of advanced mechanics, advanced mathematics and computational physics. In third year, you study in more depth topics of particular interest to you, for example, quantum theory, electrodynamics and general relativity.It is possible to transfer to the 4-year MPhys course at the beginning of your third year.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Typical Contextual Offer: BBBThis programme is designed for students whose level of Japanese at entry ranges from complete beginner to approximately A-level standard. It is not suitable for students?whose first language is Japanese.Whilst we do not insist on any particular pre-requisite subject at A-level, we are seeking strong performance in learning - and particularly in essay writing subjects. The course is very demanding in terms of academic writing as well as language learning and we therefore prefer that at least 60% of one A-level to be assessed on written work, so that applicants are able to cope with the demands of the programme.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
