What are the smallest building blocks of matter? Why can some materials conduct electric current without resistance? What are gravitational waves? Are you inquisitive and want to know how the world around us works? Other people with this attitude have been responsible for many of the world’s ground-breaking theories and applications. Are you one of them?
Is this the programme for you?
You are resourceful and interested in the laws that govern natural phenomena. You are capable of logical and abstract thought and can distinguish between main and secondary issues. You enjoyed physics at school and you achieved good grades in science subjects in general. You will need to be exceptionally good at mathematics because physicists use maths as a ‘language’ to describe the universe.
