Experience UCLan for yourself with one of our weekly campus tours.
During your Foundation Entry Year you will study alongside peers from related courses, whilst you gain a broad introduction to the fundamentals of classical and quantum physics, the mathematical ability to express those ideas, and the laboratory experience necessary to perform real physics experiments. A strong understanding of these essentials will allow you to progress on to any of our BSc (Hons)/ MPhys Physics or Astrophysics degrees. You’ll be taught by members of the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute, a diverse and international community of scientists committed to excellence in teaching and research. This teaching combined with practical experience will prepare you for a variety of careers.
