Interested in physics or astrophysics, but don’t meet the entry requirements for a three-year degree? A Foundation Year can help you get on to the course you want.

In the Department of Physics and Astronomy, we have over 20 years’ experience running this Foundation Year, teaching students from a variety of backgrounds. After passing your Foundation Year you can continue studying for any BSc degree in Physics or Astrophysics or – depending on your performance – any MPhys degree.
