Astrophysics, MPhys Hons FullTime

So far (end of pre-honours) courses have been interesting and challenging. My personal favourites have been Physics of Fields and Introductory Astrophysics. Some modules are definitely more difficult than others, and this reflects in the amount of people failing in particular modules. But is the course just hard or could this be down to teaching/resources/other? I’m not sure. read more

It’s one of the hardest courses to do because you will have to do both physics and maths very intrinsically, but if you love the subjects, it’s the best course you can go for because of the later opportunities it provides. read more

Chemical Physics, BSc Hons FullTime

Well, to be honest I don't have much to say as I still haven't finished my degree but as of now I really like the course. It is challenging of course, but honestly, if you enjoy chemistry, physics and maths you will definitely enjoy this course. Furthermore, as it is everywhere the teaching quality and the course content is quite subjective. I have some classes and tutors that I prefer over others but the overall quality is great. I've received great support from all of my tutors. read more

Physics, BSc Hons FullTime

Learning physics at Edinburgh has just led to my passion for the subject to grow and grow. Generally the teaching is fantastic, with some very interesting, captivating yet funny lecturers. All the content has been very interesting and just hard enough to keep you on your toes! You have a lot more lectures, workshops, labs etc. than other subjects, so definitely feel like your getting your moneys worth. A great environment to learn and meet some great people! read more
