What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
AAA, to include Mathematics and Physics. EPQ Offer: AAB, to include Mathematics at Grade A and Physics at grade A, and grade A or A* in the EPQ A level science subjects considered include biology, human biology, physics, mathematics, psychology, environmental studies, geology. Science practical components must be passed. General Studies, Critical Thinking, and Use of Mathematics are excluded for entry.
AAAAA, including Mathematics and Physics at Advanced Higher Level.
Typical offer: Pass, with overall score of 34, with 18 points required at Higher Level: including 6 points from Mathematics and 6 points from Physics. International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP): The University of Southampton accepts the IBCP for entry to their degree programmes, recognising the value of combining academic skills with practical skills, providing a solid preparation for university level work. Offers will be made on the individual components of the IBCP. Applicants not taking the full IBCP but presenting with a combination of a Level 3 vocational qualification and IB Certificates may still be considered. Applicants are advised to contact the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering Admissions Office at email@example.com for more information.
If your qualifications aren’t listed here, you can use our UCAS points guide of 144 and refer to the university’s website for full details of all entry routes and requirements.

Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
Nanotechnology and Nanoscience involve the study of matter and machines down to scales of a billionth of a metre. It is one of the most dynamic areas of research and development, playing a critical role both in basic physics and applied physics and engineering. Our MPhys Physics with Nanotechnology builds on the MPhys Physics programme, giving you a more advanced understanding of nanotechnology and nanoscience – and providing the skills you need to work at the nanoscale. Much of your project work will be based in our NanoFabrication Centre, a state-of-the-art facility for microfabrication and high-spec nanofabrication, and one of the premiere cleanrooms in Europe. The University of Southampton is a great place to study physics; physics and astronomy at Southampton is ranked 4th in UK (Guardian University Guide 2017), and we’re first within the Russell Group for student satisfaction (NSS 2017). And, our MPhys Physics programmes are accredited by the Institute of Physics. Placements and internships are available at organisations such as CERN, to support and prepare you for your future career. Our degrees are a passport to vocational and non-vocational careers alike, with recent graduates employed in roles ranging from actuaries and statisticians to crime analysts, scientific journalists and medical researchers.
The four-year MPhys Physics with Nanotechnology builds on the MPhys Physics programme, giving you a more advanced understanding of nanotechnology and nanoscience. The course includes key study in quantum devices, nanoscience, light and matter, molecular materials, processing of devices and the molecular basis of life. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the field, in addition to acquiring core physics knowledge, you will also learn how physics, photonics, electronics, chemistry and biochemistry relate to nanotechnology. In your first and second year you will study compulsory modules, but around a quarter of your study will involve modules chosen from a range of options. In your third and fourth year we offer numerous optional modules that reflect the specialist areas of relevant to your course and the key areas that will be critical in the future within the overall context of Physics and Astronomy. Our flexible learning programme also allows you to personalise your learning by choosing interdisciplinary modules or modules from other programmes such as modern languages, law and management. We also place great importance on the development of key transferable skills which are vital for employment. We embed these skills into your learning, right from the first lecture.
