Future opportunities

Physics, as well as supporting the traditional avenues of science, technology and engineering, may be advantageous to students wishing to go onto study the technical side of media or music. A Level Physics is required by a wide range of FE courses and careers ranging from Physics and all branches of Engineering and Technology to Architecture, Medicine, Geology and even Biochemistry where students who have followed a Physics course are often at an advantage over those who have not. Physics is an invaluable and respected qualification, demonstrating ability to follow an academic discipline.
