Welcome to Physics and Astrophysics

Jeffries_Rob As part of the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, Physics and Astrophysics is at the heart of one of the most attractive campus universities in Britain, with an aim to provide an excellent environment for multi-disciplinary teaching and research.

Physics and Astrophysics section of the School has a very strong commitment to delivering high quality educational programmes in Physics and Astrophysics, which can be read as dual or (for some combinations) major honours.

We operate an "open door" policy for our students, and are active in various outreach activities to the local community. You will find that all the staff are readily approachable and eager to help you in your studies.

Research in the School includes a highly regarded and very productive research group in Astrophysics, whose members regularly use the best observing facilities in the world; the Group works on all aspects of stellar astrophysics, from star formation, the search for planets around other stars, binary stars, and stellar death. Details of our research may be found on the Astrophysics Group pages.
