Physics with Theoretical Physics is aimed at students interested in the more mathematical and theoretical aspect of physics. The course provides a solid grounding in all aspects of physics, both theoretical and experimental, although a significant amount of practical work is replaced by lecture courses and project work in theoretical physics. In the first two years, you study the topics of advanced mechanics, advanced mathematics and computational physics. In third year, you study in more depth topics of particular interest to you, for example, quantum theory, electrodynamics and general relativity.
It is possible to transfer to the 4-year MPhys course at the beginning of your third year.
