Our courses are designed to challenge you and develop your abilities as a critical thinker. Flexibility and choice are key features of a Bristol Physics degree. Normally, you are able to transfer between courses in the first two years, and a range of options in the final year means you can specialise in your chosen field or take a more general approach. A thorough grounding in physics will equip you well whichever degree you choose. You can also choose to spend a year in industry working on a challenging project, or to study physics at a partner university in Europe. In addition to your degree, you can get involved in communicating science via Discover Science days and school visits. Our physics degrees are accredited by the Institute of Physics who also awarded us Juno status in recognition of our best practice and contribution to the representation of women in physics. We are also proud holders of an Athena SWAN bronze award. CHAOS, the very active physics students' society, organises social and educational activities, visits and trips, and a 'parenting' scheme to help make our new students welcome.
