Manchester is the only Physics department in the UK to be BOTH in the top five for the volume of world-leading and internationally excellent research AND to have the maximum rating for teaching as reported by the RAE and QAA government assessment panels respectively.
The School is committed to equality and diversity for all of our students and staff.
Manchester physics covers all aspects of the subject from Condensed Matter, Atomic and Biological Physics that predominantly use world-class facilities in Manchester, to Astronomy, Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics centred on large international facilities. Experimental research operates in synergy with strong programmes in Theoretical Physics. Here are more details on our research.
