Degree recognition

The degree recognition scheme is an important part of the Institute's support for interdisciplinary and combined degree programmes.

The primary aims of Institute recognition are to:

  • recognise the value of physics-based interdisciplinary and combined degree programmes
  • support the diversity of physics-based degree programmes and departments that provide such programmes
  • encourage the study of physics and related subjects where they appear throughout the HE sector
  • guarantee to potential students that a degree programme meets the educational requirements for Associate Membership of the Institute and provide a route to full Institute Membership following appropriate professional experience

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