20 Physics & astronomy reviews at Lancaster University


Student Review: 5 /5

Physics (Study Abroad), MPhys Hons

By member1245754 On 16th February 20

I enjoyed my course so much. The options for courses were great and I learnt a lot. I like their system of problem sheets because you work with your friends a lot to figure things out and you make good friends because of all the time working together. The workload is very manageable and the facilities at the uni in general are great, as well as in the physics department which has good study space, it has also been refurbished and looks amazing. There are always empty rooms on campus that you can find to study in with your friends. I liked my mphys final year project a lot and so did all my friends on the course. I also was lucky enough to study abroad which was really good, very interesting and I probably would not have had the opportunity otherwise. I had a fantastic time at Lancaster and for me there would have been nowhere better to study. The campus, students and lecturers are brilliant, and I had lots of time while on my course to have fun, as well as have part time jobs.

Physics, MPhys Hons

By Meeksian On 28th January 18

The feedback is exceptional, having up to 3 pieces of marked feedback a week. The exams have been made easier at only an hour each so we don't have to memorise 10000 equations anymore. The research undertaken is one of the top in the field and being able to be a part of that is something else!

Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology, BSc Hons

By member542656 On 10th October 19

The content was amazing just not nesseseraly the most easily accessible for people who are chronically ill. My blind friend was repeatedly given out of date notes which I had to help explain while not having matching notes. a lot of the lecturerers really care and are very happy to help but if you aren't able to talk in person for what ever reason it can be. note that you will constantly have coursework due in. this means if you are prone to getting ill you will get behind and the work load snow balls. if you need an extension at the begining of the term chances are you will need them through out the term. if you are disabled and can't handle constantly being under pressure I highly recomend attempting to go part time. It really helped my friend and i really wish I knew it had been a possibility after getting my diagnosis as the constant work load lead to me getting more and more ill through out my final year.
