At the start of your Physics course at University of Sheffield , you’ll cover the essential physics behind everything else you’ll study: heat, motion, electricity, magnetism and quantum mechanics. You’ll learn through lectures and practical labs so you won’t be learning about abstract topics in isolation. 

Key Features 

  • You’ll run experiments using the equipment in our modern laboratories to help you understand how important theories apply to the real world. Options include astrophysics, electronics and sustainable energy.
  • You’ll explore essential physics in even more depth in second year, and choose from options where you can learn how stars and galaxies are structured, how particles are detected or the physics of music. Optional programming classes can teach you skills that are valuable in many graduate careers, from data science to computer game design.
