Undergraduate and postgraduate

So you've been to too many 9am lectures with a sore head and seen the small hours in the company of textbooks enough for a lifetime. What's next?

Before you know it you'll enter the wider world. What could that world look like for you? The good news is that with a physics degree it’s yours for the taking.

Still don’t know what you really want to do with your life? We don’t blame you. Check out Your future with physics to see the job sectors your physics predecessors have moved into.

If you haven’t already, you could study for a postgraduate qualification, which could really give you the edge in the hunt for your dream job. You could even start your own business.

Whatever you decide, the graduate market has never been more competitive. Get ahead by topping up on the skills such as communication and teamwork that employers love.

If you’re starting to apply for jobs, great. But make sure you’re up to speed on things like CVs, application forms and interview techniques. Make that CV sparkle with some hard-hitting, relevant work experience.

If you’re graduating with a 2:2 or lower, it is not the end of the world – we’ve got it covered.
