Overview

Physicists observe natural phenomena – the way matter and energy interact – and create laws to explain them. They explore physical matter on every scale, from stars to sub-atomic particles, and energy in all its forms, such as light, motion and gravity.

When you join the Physics programme from University of Portsmouth , you'll have the opportunity to make your own contribution to the pioneering work we're doing – and play a part in transforming our research into impact.

Here, physicists are working to advance knowledge and unlock advanced technology – and from researching new information processing and quantum computing to exploring new materials, we're using our expertise in Physics to power the future, improve industry, security, defence and the environment.
