The MPhys Physics degree at Loughborough offers maximum flexibility to study optional modules from across our suite of physics courses with an in depth research project in the final year. If you want to study the widest breadth of subjects, in our state-of the-art laboratories, then this is the course for you.

It can easily be argued that physics is the most important of the sciences in shaping the world around us today. Technologies such as the simple lightbulb to advanced technologies such as the mobile phone would simply not exist without this subject.

As a discipline, Physics delves much deeper and seeks to uncover the laws of nature. Physicists use their understanding of these laws to answer the biggest, most profound questions, and to develop new materials, new technologies and, indeed, new tools to further our understanding - from telescopes able to observe the far reaches of space to microscopes capable of viewing the world at the atomic-level.

In structuring the course, we have been motivated by and taken advantage of Loughborough’s research strengths in quantum physics, condensed matter, statistical physics and the physics of materials. The MPhys Physics degree allows you to tailor the degree to your career aspirations, whether that would be to purcue a career in industrial research or to study a PhD.

Our approach to the subject is designed to support deeper learning, coordinated on a weekly basis between core physics, essential mathematics, computing and gaining vital hands-on laboratory experience in our state-of-the-art STEMLab facility.

In year 1 and 2 of the course you will study such areas as symmetry, conservation laws, electromagnetism, relativity, condensed matter, quantum physics and physics of materials, with advanced physics modules informed by departmental research in the third year and the chance to choose optional modules to start tailoring the course to your interests. In the final year MPhys students carry out an advanced research project, a chance to delve deeper into an area of physics you are passionate about and want to unearth more about.

The option of undertaking a placement year will allow you to gain skills and knowledge sought-after in the workplace, making our graduates highly employable.

You will be taught by internationally renowned staff, who are experts in their field. In the Department of Physics our staff are not only known for wanting to share their passion for the subject with you, but to also provide the academic and pastoral care you require throughout your studies.
