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 and fourth 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 3-year BSc course at the beginning of your third year.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £20,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
