Physics encompasses the study of the universe, from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. It is crucial to understanding the world around you, the world inside you, and the world beyond you. Studying this course will challenge your imagination. It is only in Physics that you will find yourself thinking about everything from how the universe started to how a bridge stays up. You will also gain a firm grounding in the importance of the application of mathematics in science. You will become a more confident physicist, starting to understand the world around you and how you can describe it and solve the challenges within it.
