Course description

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.

Please follow the link below to our undergraduate handbook (also known as The Blue Book). Here you can find out more information about the course content of your chosen degree programme: http://bluebook.physics.manchester.ac.uk/

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2017 will be £9,250 per annum. Future inflationary increases will be applied to each subsequent year of the course, subject to government regulations on fee increases.
