Physics is a fascinating subject which not only helps us to understand how the physical universe operates, but also underpins many of the technologies that we use in our everyday lives.‌

Physics at Dundee was rated No.1 in the UK in the National Student Survey 2015. Our internationally respected research was ranked 7th out of 62 in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.

At Dundee much of our research focus is at interdisciplinary boundaries, trying to solve not only big problems in the physical sciences, but also in biology and medical science as well. These research themes underpin our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, developing highly skilled graduates well suited to a wide range of careers upon graduation.
