This Physics (Hons) course from Coventry University aims to provide you with a solid grounding in understanding fundamental concepts in physics.

Visit the official programme website for more information


This Physics (Hons) course from Coventry University  explores phenomena at all length scales, from the sub-atomic level (quantum mechanics) to the macroscopic scale (cosmology), and everything in between.

It aims to train you to identify key aspects of physical phenomenon, as well as in the essential approximations required to carry out practical calculations.

An essential part of the course relies on understanding numerical and experimental processes and the uncertainties inherent to measurements. As such, there will be ample opportunity for you to engage with real-world data analysis and experimental techniques using activity-led learning, lab-before-lecture and flipped learning techniques, which have formed a long-standing part of Coventry University’s teaching and learning strategy.


Studying physics will give you the opportunity to help you to develop skills in logical thinking, and demonstrates to employers your advanced numerical and analytical ability.

It may also give you an advantage in the job market upon successful completion, opening up a wide range of career opportunities in industry, banking, data science, computer analysis and scientific research. You may be employed in a wide variety of roles, for example, as a research scientist, actuary, computer programmer, data analyst or teacher.
