Why Choose Physics?

From cancer treatment to tackling climate changegaming to robotics and artificial intelligence, physics and physicists are on the front line, helping to shape the future. At a time when jobs are changing, physics offers a vast and expanding range of career paths.

And it’s not only science and technology. What many people don’t realise is how valued and respected physics skills and ways of thinking are in other, often well-paid, industries – like finance and law.

Whether you’re a young person thinking about your future or a parent or carer wanting to understand the careers physics can unlock
