The School of Physics & Astronomy is one of the leading Physics departments in the UK, carrying out research in a broad range of areas such as Astronomy, Cosmology, Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Biophysics and Astrobiology.

Researchers in the School are regularly involved in high-impact work such as the search for the Higgs Boson, the study of the oldest galaxies in the Universe, and investigating the nature of the "dark matter" and "dark energy", which make up 95% of the universe.

The School's research varies from being highly fundamental to very applied and a number of our research groups are involved in collaborative projects with industrial partners.
