We admit 6 students per year for Physics or Physics & Philosophy:
BA (Hons) Physics (3 years) MPhys Physics (4 years) BA (Hons) Physics & Philosophy (3 years) MPhysPhil Physics & Philosophy (4 years)
In the first two years of the course undergraduates will be taught mostly by the College physics tutors. In the third year of the course tutorials will be given by the College tutors or external specialist tutors. Advanced options in the fourth year are taught in classes provided by the University Physics Department. There will generally be two tutorials or classes each week; during the first year, for example, one will be on physics and one on maths. Undergraduates are generally paired for tutorials; for variety, all the pairs in one year may sometimes be merged and taught as a class. This in-College teaching complements the programme of lectures and practical laboratory sessions provided by the University Physics Department. In addition to the regular tutorial contact with the tutors, there are opportunities to learn about physics research at first hand through meeting with graduate students studying for research degrees in physics, of whom there are usually about ten in the College.
