Description

Overview
It can easily be argued that physics is the most important of the sciences in shaping the world around us today. Technologies such as the simple light bulb to advanced technologies like the mobile phone would simply not exist without this subject. Physics goes much further than this though, as it is a discipline that seeks to determine the laws of nature itself.
Motivated by a desire to reflect and take advantage of Loughborough's research strengths in quantum physics, condensed matter, statistical physics and the physics of materials, the core Physics BSc (Hons) degree has recently been revised from the ground up and structured to provide what we believe will be an exciting and academically outstanding course.
The Physics degree at Loughborough offers maximum flexibility to study optional modules from our suite of physics courses. If you want to study the widest breadth of subjects, or do not yet wish to decide on a particular focus, then this is the degree for you. For further insight into what you can expect to study on our Physics degree, please take a look at the modules listed below.
