Physics

Physicists will save the world! Over the course, explore the fundamental nature of almost everything we know about. Physicists probe the furthest reaches of the Earth, to study the smallest pieces of matter and the universe, deep beneath the surface of normal human experience.

The top 7 university courses available to successful students with Physics A Level are Physics, Mechanical and Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Economics, Business and Maths. Physics is considered a ‘facilitating’ A Level ’by the Russell Group universities, increasing your course options. Studying A Level Physics offers a vast number of career opportunities, including the cutting edge of engineering, astrophysics, chemical physics, nanotechnology, renewable energy, geology, geophysics and more. There will be an opportunity to attend Cardiff University for a 3 day insight into Physics degrees, using their facilities.
