What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
A*AA including Mathematics and Physics with A* in Mathematics or Physics (or Further Mathematics if applicable). A level subjects that will not be considered in your application A level General Studies will not be considered. We may be unable to consider an A level in your own language (unless it is English or Welsh). Alternative A level offer AAA including Mathematics and Physics plus one of the following: grade A in an EPQ grade B in the Welsh Baccalaureate Skills Challenge Certificate grade M1 in Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives Students presenting with one of the above project qualifications should receive both the typical offer and the alternative.
AA in Advanced Highers including Mathematics and Physics plus AAAAA in Scottish Highers.
36 points overall with 7, 6, 6 in three Higher Level subjects including Mathematics and Physics. We have a strong preference for applicants who offer Mathematics and Physics at Higher Level. We may be able to consider you if you are studying one of these subjects at Standard Level (but not both). Our offer in this instance would be 7 in the relevant Standard Level in addition to our typical offer.

Master the mysteries of physics from first principles to advanced problem-solving. You’ll be prepared for a career in industry or academia. Physics is ‘the science of everything’. Study matter, energy and how they interact from the subatomic to cosmological scales. Learn about the structure of physical laws and take part in their discovery. Along the way you will learn to think like a physicist. You’ll also develop powerful problem-solving skills, preparing you not only for a career in physics, but many other fields as well. As a graduate, you will combine sound mathematical and experimental expertise. You’ll be able to grasp new concepts and apply them to a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar challenges. The Master of Physics (MPhys) degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc students, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You’ll study masters-level units and a major research project, preparing you for more academic or technical roles, postgraduate study or a career in research.
