Physics asks the biggest questions in the Universe!
Where did we come from? Where are we going? How do we make
sense of the world around us?
But more than that, physics underpins our very way of life by
providing the technology and science behind mobile phones, the
internet, biomedical scans, corrective lenses in glasses, and mass
At Hull, we have internationally recognized experts in laser physics, astrophysics, condensed-matter theory, and experimental solid-state physics who have made
significant contributions to their field. Our students have access
to these scientists and the opportunity to work with them very
closely in project work during their undergraduate career.
Our staff are enthusiastic teachers, who aim to inspire our
students to develop a deep understanding of physics. We also use
active-learning to develop skills so that our graduates have
successful careers in physics or other professions.
