We are proud of our record in both research and teaching. For several years the School has ranked in the top quartile of Russell Group UK Physics Departments in terms of our research income per academic FTE, and for many years the School has consistently scored highly for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey and other student barometers. Our undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses and degree programmes are accredited by the Institute of Physics.

Studying with us offers you a fundamental understanding of the way the universe works, brings you to the forefront of technology, and provides the opportunity to work in world-leading research groups. Our outstanding research was recognised in the latest REF (2014) when Physics and Astronomy at Glasgow was 9th in the UK for impact from its research.
