Overview

Over the duration of the course you will begin to understand that physics is critical to how everything in the world works. You will study in the inner workings on mechanics, paying particular attention to motion, forces, work and energy. You will understand electrons, waves and photons, and analyse the Newtonian world, all while applying theoretical knowledge and giving it a �real-life� context. During the course you will study a range of topics including: * Mechanics and further mechanics * Electrical circuits * Electric and magnetic fields * Nuclear and particle physics * Waves and particle nature of light * Thermodynamics * Oscillations By the end of the course you will think like a true Physician and be fascinated by how things works and understand how Physics has underpinned recent technological developments that have revolutionised our world, such as mobile phones, the Internet and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanning.

How will it be delivered?

Your progress will be regularly assessed by tests, and coursework, with regular feedback and guidance being offered for constant improvement.

Entry requirements

You will need at least GCSE Maths grade B/6 and Physics grade B/6 or Combined Science grade BB/6-6.

Your next steps...

Completion of this course may facilitate access onto degrees courses including Physics or Engineering.
