Overview

  • Our programmes cover a wide range of topics, both applied and theoretical, directly developed from research taking place at Exeter
  • Learn within a supportive community characterised by genuine student-staff relationships and small tutorial groups, typically made up of five students
  • Option to combine your degree with a salaried research placement at companies such as Renishaw, the Home Office, and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories
  • Opportunity to join a close-knit student society with great social events throughout the year
  • Benefit from access to advanced research facilities including clean-rooms, a helium liquefier, a water tank, amplified ultra-fast laser systems, and a suite of instruments for imaging biological materials

Your future

Employability skills are an integral part of the physics curriculum. The flexibility and adaptability of a well-trained physicist is appreciated by employers: they acknowledge the benefits of excellent problem solving skills, an educated scientific intuition, and the confidence to be able to grasp new concepts quickly.

The Physics programme at The University of Exeter include:

  • A two-day employability and graduate development workshop in year one
  • A two-day communication skills course in year one
  • Annual personal development planning exercises
  • Training in the formulation and solution of problems
  • Substantial amounts of practical and project work, the results of which must be presented and defended in various formats (written reports, posters, oral presentations)
  • Working with others in projects and problem-solving classes
  • IT skills training
  • Mathematical skills training
  • An opportunity to take a commercial and industrial experience module

In addition, the purpose of the extended project work in both the BSc and MPhys programmes is for you to develop research skills. You will learn to present and scientifically defend your work and ideas in a variety of ways. The experience and skills developed not only form a valuable basis for a research career, but are also known to be highly valued by employers.
