School of Physics & Astronomy - news
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.
08 SepResearch from University of Glasgow's Dr Robert Bennett has been featured in Scientific American.
27 AugGlasgow physicists have pinned down Vcs, a key parameter of the Standard Model, by combining their calculations on STFC's DIRAC supercomputer with results from particle physics experiments around the world for the rate of D meson decay to a K meson in a process akin to nuclear beta decay.
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.
