Welcome to the department of Physics and Astronomy.

We're in the Top 5 UK Physics departments according to the Guardian league tables - for the second year running!

Our goals are to provide innovative, high quality teaching, to conduct research of international importance, collaborate with industry and to communicate our enthusiasm for our subject. Whether you are interested in undergraduate study, in postgraduate training, in our research activities or in one of our outreach programmes, we hope these web pages prove to be useful. If you need any further information, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
