Physics involves the exploration of nature in the broadest possible sense. Physicists discover how the universe behaves and use that knowledge for the benefit of humanity. Our course covers both pure and applied physics.
Develop a deep understanding of fundamental physics, from astronomical phenomena to quantum mechanics. As the course progresses, you’ll gain knowledge in classical physics as well as advancements in modern physics.
At Level 4, you’ll carry out a personal project involving practical experience in a research laboratory. For example, you could develop optical techniques to examine cancerous tissue, or investigate the behaviour of positrons in solar cell materials to identify missing atom defects that degrade performance.
Physics at the University of Dundee has had a tremendous impact on the modern world. We paved the way for the creation of LCD screens in the 70s and 80s. More recently, we have helped to understand how extra-solar planets form, and helped build optical diagnostic devices for CERN.
Much of what you learn will relate to research that our staff carry out such as biophysics, advanced materials, and photonics. Our high staff-to-student ratio fosters a friendly environment and approachable lecturers.
Our Physics Society runs regular social events. They have organised trips to CERN, Munich, and Amsterdam as well as the annual Physics Ball. You can meet with students from all year groups to help guide you through the more challenging aspects of the course.
Tuition fees for International students will increase by no more than 5% per year for the length of your course.
Tuition fees for Scottish students is €2,100 and for the Rest of UK is €10,700.
UK application deadline: January 31.
