AS/A2: Physics at Stephenson Studio School
PHYSICS What is Physics? Physics help us to understand how our world works, from the smallest particles through to the huge galaxies that make up the universe. It is the basis of modern technology from mobile phones to space travel. If you have enjoyed physics so far and want to know more, then consider joining us in the sixth form. We promise that the course will be varied and challenging. Each group will be taught by two teachers to give you the benefit of their particular expertise and interest and to add variety.
5 A*-C GCSE's or equivalent and at least grade B at GCSE for this or a related subject
Complimentary subjects – Maths is essential for anyone thinking of taking physics or engineering past A2 and chemistry helps to deliver similar skills. Biology, geography, economics or languages often feature in the package but then so do most other subjects from art for architects to English for science journalists. Careers – Apart from the obvious degrees in physics/engineering/maths, physics is relevant to courses such as dentistry, medicine, meteorology, physiotherapy, sports science and architecture to name but a few. Many physicist turn to accountancy and business since they have the necessary analytical and numerical skills. See the Institute of Physics website http://careers.iop.org for more ideas.
