This is our most popular and flexible course, which gives you a thorough grounding in the basic concepts and theories of modern and classical physics to a level close to contemporary research.
You’ll develop your mathematical ability and communication, computing and experimental skills as well as getting the chance to create a portfolio of your research. You can study this degree as a three-year BSc or four-year MSci with the latter going into greater depth than the former.
The MSci is usually the degree of choice for those planning to use their Physics degree in a professional capacity, either in science-based employment or through further study at PhD level. The fourth year of the MSci degrees, while based at Royal Holloway, also offers a wide variety of 4th year intercollegiate options that may be taken at other University of London Departments of Physics.
