Physics is the most fundamental of all sciences. It observes and explores the physical laws and principles that govern the nature of the universe. Astrophysics encompasses study of the exciting arena of planets, stars and galaxies. This Physics with Astrophysics course from University of Leeds allows you to explore astrophysics from your very first week.


On this Physics with Astrophysics course from University of Leeds, you’ll develop thorough knowledge of core physics, from thermodynamics to quantum physics. You’ll also study a broad range of astrophysics topics, such as high energy astrophysics, stellar structure and evolution, and cosmology.

Moreover, on this course you’ll get involved in real research via several routes, such as through our group industrial project module and your final year research project. We offer all students the chance to apply to do a summer research placement, where you’ll work with our researchers and be paid a salary. As well as advancing you as a physicist, these opportunities allow you to develop transferable skills that can help you achieve your aspirations.

Career opportunities

Physics graduates are in demand for some of the highest paid and most satisfying roles in employment.

The numerical, analytical and problem-solving skills you will develop and your specialist subject knowledge are highly valued across sectors including aerospace, electronics, energy, environment, and transport. This course also allows you to develop the transferable skills that employers seek.

One of the key features of this course is the final year research project, which is an opportunity to work with one of our internationally recognised research groups. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your independent research skills and teamwork abilities; it will prepare you for a career in research in both academia and industry.

Almost a third of our students progress onto PhD study or other postgraduate qualifications. For further information on career paths and employability please see our careers pages. To learn about the careers of School of Physics and Astronomy alumni, see their profiles.
