MPhys, BSc Theoretical Physics
(Award available for year: Bachelor of Science)
On completion of the programme students should have shown evidence of being able:- demonstrate a basic knowledge and understanding of many physical laws and principles, and some applications of these principles;- identify relevant principles and laws when dealing with problems;- manipulate numerical and other quantitative information, and apply manipulative skills to the solution of problems;- apply a variety of rigorously-based mathematical skills to the theoretical understanding of physical phenomena;- undertake project work in Theoretical Physics;- communicate in writing or orally the results of their work or other scientific information in a variety of styles or for different audiences;- work autonomously within a structured environment.
Transferable (key) skills
Masters (Taught) students will have had the opportunity to acquire the following abilities as defined in the modules specified for the programme:- the skills necessary to undertake a higher research degree and/or for employment in a higher capacity in industry or area of professional practice;- evaluating their own achievement;- self direction and effective decision making in complex and unpredictable situations;- independent learning and the ability to work in a way which ensures continuing professional development.
Achievement for the degree of Master (taught programme) will be assessed by a variety of methods in accordance with the learning outcomes of the modules specified for the year/programme and will involve the achievement of the students in:- evidencing an ability to apply breadth and depth of knowledge to a complex specialist area;- drawing on a range of perspectives on an area of study;- evaluating and criticising received opinion;- make reasoned judgements whilst understanding the limitations on judgements made in the absence of complete data.
