Career Opportunities

Physicists are highly sought in the workplace in fields as diverse as engineering, finance, education, IT, communications, Law and Accountancy. A-Level Physics is essential if you intend to study physical sciences or related subjects at university and highly recommended for medicine. However, it is also a good foundation for many non-scientific careers as analytical, logical, numeracy, ICT, precision and practical techniques and skills are acquired. All of these skills are readily transferable to other disciplines. The politician Angela Merkel and the British comedian Rowan Atkinson are amongst famous physics graduates!

Physics is the route to so many careers, from predicting climate change to designing computer games. Find out where physics can take you.
