Join a University ranked in the UK top five for Physics research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning.

Physics is a truly international venture. This course follows the structure of the MSci Physics degree, but with the third year spent in Europe so you can experience life as a physicist in a different culture.

In line with our traditional curriculum, this course offers a comprehensive grounding in physics and mathematics, practical work in the laboratory, and computational physics

Alongside this, you will study a language in preparation for your placement at a European partner university where you will study units that parallel the third year of our Bristol degree programme. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Centre for Study Abroad.

In your final year, back in Bristol, you will undertake a major project or dissertation. This will require you to work in a research group with a member of staff. Our students' final-year projects address questions at the frontier of our research fields. The most successful have been published in scientific journals.

Join our friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. Here you will be encouraged to develop a broad range of skills, including problem-solving and communication. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment post-study. This is a testament to the value that employers place on these skills.

Think Big bursaries of £3,000 are available to support first-year international undergraduate students in this subject area.
