Physics underpins today£s scientific advances. Space exploration, fibre-optic communication and even the human genome project couldn£t have happened without physics. People with physics qualifications are at the heart of the technological developments that drive our society forwards. But they also turn up in surprising places such as improving the environment, treating cancer and predicting stock markets. As a physicist, you are driven by curiosity about the universe, you are a problem solver and you have imagination. You might decide to become a professional scientist, but physics opens other doors too. Your skills will be valued by employers in journalism, law, education ' the list is endless.
Typical entry requirements BSc programmes: A level grades ABB (320 points) BSc programmes: both Mathematics and Physics are normally required to A level (or equivalent). Students with A level Maths or Physics and with a good AS in the other may be considered on an individual basis. BSc Physics with Foundation Year does not require Maths or Physics A levels.
