Physics and Astronomy


The Department of Physics and Astronomy holds Juno Champion status and, through the reciprocal agreement between the Institute of Physics and Advance HE, an Athena Swan Silver Award.

We are committed to ensuring that every member of our department feels welcome and included, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

Our Inclusion Group, led by the Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, develops actions and facilitates discussions to ensure equity and fairness across departmental policies and procedures related to, for example, workload, promotions, and recruitment.

We welcome staff and students to share feedback with us on working and studying within the department of Physics and Astronomy. Your feedback will be analysed by our Inclusion Group and translated into actions for improvement within the department.
