BSc Program in United Kingdom 2017. Physics aims to observe and explain the behaviour of the physical universe. In particular, physics looks for basic laws, which account for and predict what can be observed. Part of the appeal of the subject is that the physical world is governed by remarkably few such laws and that these apply everywhere and to everything. The structure of the courses reflects the structure of the subject. All students take the core modules and choose further modules from the lists of options. The core modules introduce the fundamental principles, while the optional modules explore their applications in the different areas of physics including: astrophysics, the properties of matter, particle physics and atmospheric physics. The option scheme also allows a proportion of modules to be taken from outside of physics. We encourage students not only to consider modules related to physics, for example in computing, but also modules in philosophy and modern languages. Please download the course booklet for more information. Below is a list of the individual modules in each year and more detail on their content can be found by following the links above.

BSc Program in United Kingdom 2017. Study human evolution and adaptation utilising our specialist osteology lab; plus the option to study in the USA. The BSc in Biological Anthropology focuses on the study of human evolution and adaptation. Biological anthropologists are particularly interested in investigating why variation arose and how it is maintained, as well as trying to explain how people are adapted to the environments in which they live. They study the human fossil and stone tool record, human material culture and the development of modern human behaviour in evolutionary and comparative perspective. Biological anthropology has four main subdisciplines: human biology and behaviour, genetics, human evolution, and primatology. Typical questions that biological anthropologists might ask are: Why do people living in different areas have different skin colours or facial shapes? What diseases existed in ancient populations? How did humans evolve? How closely related are humans and chimpanzees? Why are symmetrical faces more attractive? What can we learn about how people lived from studying their skeletons? Why is sex fun? Course Structure "An exciting degree programme that offers a scientifically based approach to the study of humans and provides you a wide range of skills that prepare you for your future. We have expanded and invested in teaching materials to give you a range of unique opportunities in biology and anthropology."

University of Kent, School of Physical Sciences
Campus Full time 3 - 4 years September 2017 United Kingdom Canterbury

BSc (Hons), MPhys - Astronomy, Space Science and Astrophysics Astronomy, space science and astrophysics allow us to see the Universe and our place in it. Through studying these subjects mankind has continually enlarged its horizons and explored the cosmos. The subjects continually evolve and change every year based on discoveries by researchers around the world. Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences, practised by most of the world's ancient civilisations, and one of the most modern, relying for many recent discoveries on high technology and the space programme. It is an observational science that provides our view of the vast ranges of scales of space, time and physical conditions in the Universe. Astrophysics emphasises the underlying physical concepts of the stars and galaxies, which make up the universe, providing an understanding of the physical nature of bodies and processes in space and the instruments and techniques used in modern astronomical research. Space is often referred to as the final frontier of exploration by mankind. Space exploration and observations depend to a large extent on satellites and other forms of space probes. Designers of space equipment need a good understanding of physics and astrophysics, together with specialised engineering skills. We also offer the chance to study in the USA on our MPhys Programme. A course list is provided below and you may find our student profiles on the year in the USA interesting to read here. For further information on the opportunity to spend a year abroad, please contact us. DID... [-]
