Students undertaking the BSc Physics with Education graduate with a degree in physics and are also qualified to teach physics in secondary schools.
The course will cover all of the core topics of a degree in physics alongside education modules, and will include school placements that will give students on the course the necessary first-hand experience of teaching in the classroom.
The first two years of the course are the same as the BSc (Hons) Physics course - and it is possible to transfer between the courses up to the end of the second year.
You will be taught by research-active academics who are specialists in their field. UWS is part of a group of Scottish universities which have formed a research alliance with the aim of placing Scotland at the forefront of physics research.
