Essentially, physics is the study of the entire universe. From studying stars far beyond earth, to explaining the shape of a water droplet, physics degrees offer students the chance to understand the world around them in all its enormity and complexity.
Alongside practical work and experimentation, physics degrees will also include lots of theoretical learning and complex mathematics – so make sure that’s something you’re prepared for.
