School of Physics & Astronomy - news
16 NovAs part of our Kelvin Connections wellbeing week, we found out how some of our staff members relax and keep on top of their busy workloads. Read their top tips below, and visit our Connections Point Wellbeing Stall on level 2 of the Kelvin Building to add your own tips to our display boards.
09 NovConnecting with others helps us human beings thrive. Research increasingly demonstrates this, and NHS resources list ‘connecting’ as the very first step to improved wellbeing. That’s why we at the School of Physics & Astronomy have planned a wellbeing week all around making connections, and who better to front such a campaign than a man connected to almost every building, river, and subway station within a five-mile radius – our very own Lord Kelvin!
15 SepTo celebrate Mara Dougall joining the School of Physics and Astronomy as a Student Support Officer, we sat down for a chat to find out more about Mara and her role.
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.
