Had to teach myself nearly the whole course. No support if you haven’t done Further Maths. No student support, no DASS support, no career support or any sense of involvement from the university. So so many issues in welfare, lecturers being openly discriminant against poor students, head of pastoral care for year groups going for pints on campus over welfare meetings, it’s a mess.

So far, my experience in the University and Physics has been amazing. There are people who are professionals in their fields and are associated with CERN, fermilab and LIGO.

Overall physics is pretty good. Your mate who got into Oxford will look down on you, and you'll swear you aren't bitter that St Andrews rejected your application, but when you're taught by Brian Cox none of that matters.

I studied for a masters degree at the University of Manchester. Given my time again I would never go back here, based on my experiences. The academics did not care one jot about my education. There were very few classes and my polite emails asking for help were ignored. I self-taught almost everything, which was extremely stressful. I actually received more help online from staff at other universities (I am not making this up!). All communication on my course had to go through the school office via their official email. As such, there were some lecturers on the course who I never saw in person. I did not feel like a student here, at all. I really regret not going to Surrey or Birmingham who have a more open and friendly approach with their students. In summary I did not receive an education at Manchester. It is a degree factory with unfriendly staff, both academic and clerical.

Honestly 4 of the hardest years of my life, but really benefitted coming out the other end. It is a course where the help is everywhere if you look for it, but it is exceptionally hard to come out with a really high end degree because of the intense workload. That's probably why it's so prestigious! The value for money is brilliant with world experts in physics on every corridor and also PhD students, getting teaching positions across the school to help bring a coherent teaching experience. They have been in your shoes recently and so have an empathy along with great insight into the course. The tutors are really good but some don't care. However the pastoral system in the school along with the fluid conscientiousness to student voice and representatives means that the school is always looking to improve, a modest but driven young Head of School who is always willing to help students. The staff understand how the students shape the school to some extent, even with the prestige.

Good good good good good I guess?

I'm honestly not even on this course but your website doesn't have the foundation courses listed

Just be prepared for a tough course! Physics is not easy and some modules are harder than others, and some are taught better too. If you're serious about it and you work hard then you will be fine :) just expect to be challenged!

It's a physics degree at Manchester, what else are you gonna expect?

Too many students, no prestige factor, tutors don't care as you are one of many.

I actually study Physics with study in europe but this website doesn't have it on here for some reason. Love being able to study french alongside physics, the uni has links with fantastic french unis too for me to study abroad in 3rd year.
