Addysg a Dysgu

What will I learn?

The breakdown below will provide with an illustration of what you may study during the three year degree scheme.

In your first year you may discover:

  • The main branches of classical and modern physics
  • The core mathematical disciplines of algebra and calculus
  • The computational and experimental physics
  • Classical Dynamics
  • The basic principles of gravitational and electrostatic fields

In your second year you may explore:

  • Stars
  • Planets
  • Thermal Physics
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Data handling and statistics
  • Optics
  • Experimental Physics

In your third year you may study and undertake:

  • Space plasmas
  • Planetary atmospheres
  • Ionospheres and magnetospheres
  • The solar atmosphere and heliosphere
  • Atoms, molecules and electromagnetism
  • You will also undertake a special project of your own choosing under the guidance of your personal project supervisor. 

How will I be taught?

We teach our students through lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, practicals, individual and group-based project work.

We assess our students through coursework, presentations, lab reports, lab diaries and examinations.

Further information:

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your degree course, who will help you with any problems or queries, whether these are academic-related or personal issues. You should feel free to contact them at any time for help and advice.

You will also have the opportunity to complete a Personal Development Plan (PDP) at Aberystwyth. This is a structured process of self-appraisal, reflection, and planning, which will enable you to chart your personal, academic and professional development throughout your time at university. By recording your academic performance, and highlighting the skills you already have and those you will need for future employability, the PDP portfolio will equip you with the necessary tools to plan effectively, develop successful approaches to study, and consider your future career options and aspirations.

I love Physics with Planetary and Space Physics. The structure of the years is perfectly designed to give you a feel for all branches of physics rather than a more in-depth view of one particular branch. The modules themselves are pretty awesome studying planetary atmospheres to the solar interior, from the structure of the atom all the way to the structure of the galaxies. James Parker

It is really fascinating as not only do you look at the cosmos, but you also get down to the real nitty-gritty of what makes a solar system tick - the planets. Doing PSP gives you a great range of information from how the Sun works, to the possibility of life on other worlds and how we might discover them! All in all it's a pretty fantastic course - comparing the science of this world to that of others is real front-line exploration! Timothy Edward Andrew Powell
