Descripción



In Years 1 and 2, the course provides a foundation in classical physics including dynamics, waves, electromagnetism and thermodynamics. At the same time newer concepts are introduced including the unification of space and time, the meaning of wave-particle duality and the relation between entropy and disorder. This introduction is taught through course units in special relativity, quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. These modern concepts and the techniques of classical physics lay the foundation for study in Year 3 and 4 during which you may choose from a wide range of options designed to develop your expertise in diverse topics including: atomic and molecular structure, solid state electronic devices, electro-magnetic radiation, lasers, stars and cosmology, particle and nuclear physics and the more advanced aspects of theoretical physics.

Welsh bachelorccalaureate, including A Levels in Physics and Maths, Grades A* A*
Acceptable on its own or in combination with other qualifications. Applications from students studying for this qualification are welcome and all such applicants will be considered on an individual bachelorsis. Contact the University for further information.
Applicants are advised to apply initially to our Science with a Integrated Foundation Year
(UCAS Code F008)
. This is a one year programme designed to improve your scientific knowledge and understanding to a level where you will be suitable for a science degree in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences. You are guaranteed a place provided you meet the entry criteria for your chosen degree.
In studying the Foundation Year you will take courses in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry (where appropriate) plus Communication Skills and ICT. Finally, you will complete a project that is specific or closely related to your anticipated degree programme.

The University welcomes applicants with the AP qualification. Such applications will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
The University of Manchester welcomes the introduction of the level 3 specialised diplomas. We look forward to providing guidance regarding progression opportunities and subject and grade requirements when further details on equivalences are published
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: UCAS reference guidelines
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
A level Grades A*A*A - A* AA or equivalent (to include Physics and Maths)
IELTS overall score of 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in each sub-test
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
Application and selection
Apply through UCAS
.
Applicants to this course can change to any of our Physics-bachelorsed degree courses at any time up to the start of the academic year.
Applications are considered on the bachelorsis of the information on the UCAS form. Promising candidates are invited for a visit day which includes an academic interview.
We would be interested in any work experience, although we realise that this is very difficult to find in relevant areas.
All promising applicants are invited to a visit day which includes an academic interview. The interview is used to determine the details of any offer that might be made and to add information in borderline cases.
We welcome applicants who are returning to education and are as flexible as possible when making offers. 
We are happy to consider applicants from overseas. We have no quota limitations for overseas applicants.
We are happy to consider applicants who wish to defer. We normally also guarantee a place in the current year should the applicant's Gap Year plans change.
If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.
We are happy to consider applicants who are taking their examinations in different sittings.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Careers
More than two-thirds of graduates make direct use of their knowledge of physics and obtain scientific, technical and computing jobs or go on to postgraduate research. Others go into the commercial, financial and business sectors where they pursue careers in areas such as management, accountancy and marketing where analytical and technical skills developed during the course are highly valued.
Institute of Physics.
All undergraduate Physics students are offered free membership of the Institute of Physics
