Physics and Astronomy at the University of Exeter is a vibrant academic community dedicated to delivering world-class teaching and research.

We provide a stimulating and supportive environment for our undergraduates, using research-led teaching to expose them to ideas at the cutting edge of our subject. Physics is a global activity that cuts across both academia and business, and we have programmes that reflect this, enabling students to study abroad or gain valuable experience by undertaking a professional placement.

Our research encompasses a broad range of experimental, computational, and theoretical physics, with research groups in electromagnetic and acoustic materials, quantum systems and nanomaterials, biomedical physics, and astrophysics.

Research projects range from the study of thermodynamics in the quantum regime, to the atmospheres of exoplanets and the diagnosis and treatment of cancer using nanoparticles. We also work closely with non-academic partners, including the electronics and defence industries, as well as the Met Office and NHS Trusts.
