Physics A Level

Physics A Level

The Physics A Level course at Queen Mary’s College will allow you to explore the fundamental principles of physics, from measurements and particles to waves, mechanics, electricity, and nuclear physics. This course not only cultivates strong logical, numerical, and problem-solving skills but also opens doors to diverse career opportunities, whether in engineering, medicine, environmental science, or other fields. No matter what interests you have, there is an area of Physics for you at QMC.

Studying Science in our state-of-the-art labs and project spaces will enable you to develop the necessary technical ability and knowledge to play your part. Whatever your talent, at QMC you will find customised support to meet your aspirations and successfully pursue your particular interests and goals.

Where can this course take me?

Advances in Science and Technology are revolutionising the world in which we live and influence almost every aspect of our lives. With the pace of discovery and development ever increasing, the range of career opportunities for people with the skills that Science qualifications provide are unimaginably diverse and you will always be in demand.

Physicists solve ‘real world’ problems using mathematical reasoning, sound arguments and reliable evidence; skills you will develop on this course. During your studies you will learn how to perform investigations in our state of the art laboratories; you will learn how to collect and interpret data, and how to use this evidence to explain interesting phenomena. You will be required to clearly communicate the reasoning behind your conclusions using logical steps that others can follow. Physicists develop strong logical, numerical, problem solving skills that will make you an attractive prospect for many different employers from a variety of different industries. Physicists are in demand in engineering fields of all types; but also in areas as diverse as medicine, archaeology, police work, environmental science, aerospace and accountancy for example: the list is almost endless.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

QMC offers extra-curricular opportunities to students to help them learn and develop their skills and knowledge, to supplement their classroom learning. As a Physics student at QMC, you are able to go on course related trips and experiences. In second year, you are also able to attend Physics for University workshops to prepare you to study science in higher education. Every year QMC students design, build, test and enter into battle against other sixth-form students from around Europe in the annual Student Robotics competition. Watch this video to find out more and see the closest final, the competition has ever seen!
