About this course
This specialist course offers a unique opportunity to combine physics with a year studying abroad. You'll spend your fourth year with the international research team at CERN in Geneva and work on a project at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Experiments at the LHC led to the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of the Higgs boson.
Experience at CERN will be recognised by research institutions worldwide, opening up a wide range of career and PhD possibilities.
While at CERN, you’ll work on one of the following experiments:
LHCb, which is investigating differences between matter and antimatter
ATLAS or CMS, both of which are broad research programmes looking for new particles
We’re the only UK university to offer a physics degree with an integrated 1-year placement at CERN.
This course is based at Highfield, Southampton.
This qualification is awarded by the University of Southampton.
