Degree recognition

The recognition of degrees with a physics component is an important part of the Institute's support for interdisciplinary and combined degree programmes.

The primary aims of Institute recognition are to:

  • Support the standing of individual courses and departments
  • Support students wishing to maintain an interest in physics, and guarantee to potential students that a degree programme can meet the educational requirements for Associate Membership of the Institute and provide a route to full Institute Membership following appropriate professional experience
  • Encourage the study of physics and related subjects where they appear throughout the HE sector

Recognised degree programmes are listed in the  Register of Recognised Courses (PDF, 25 KB).
