Careers resources for students

The Institute produces a number of resources to help school and college students make informed decisions about their future.

The Expand leaflet is for students making decisions at 16; Physics at University is for those considering post-18 options. Both leaflets cover commonly asked questions, careers from physics and the post-18 leaflet has additional advice on choosing a university.

Students can also find out more online at physics.org/careers or look up entry requirements for undergraduate physics degrees at myPhysicscourse.org.

To order copies of the leaflet or booklet please email education@iop.org.
