Program description

In the Study Abroad programmes you will broaden your experience by studying physics in a new cultural environment in your third year. The core programme is similar to the physics programmes offered entirely in Exeter (e.g. MPhys Physics), but includes alternative options. We have agreements with physics departments at Iowa State University, the University of Kansas, and the University of New Mexico in the USA; the University of Sydney and the University of Wollongong in Australia; and Massey University and the University of Auckland in New Zealand. You will return to Exeter in your final year, to take further modules and carry out a research project in one of our research groups.

Key Information for your year abroad
•You will undertake your year abroad in pairs
•You will meet with the Study Abroad Co-ordinator to discuss in detail the arrangements for your year abroad by the end of the Spring Term of year 2
•You will have the opportunity to express a preference for which host institution you wish to attend
•Normally you will have ample time for travelling around your host country
•There is a physics co-ordinator at each host institution available to provide academic and pastoral support
•The fees for the third year are charged at 15% of the full fee, i.e. £1350 in 2015 (£9000 normally)
•You will pay your fees to Exeter, and there is no further fee to pay to the institution that you visit
•You will remain in regular email contact with us while abroad
•The courses taken abroad are broadly similar to those that run during the third year for Exeter students
•You will choose your year 4 MPhys project before you leave, undertake a background report while abroad, and your project work is concentrated into Year 4 (normally spread between years 3 and 4)
•The host institutions offer physics options not available in Exeter, such as astronomy practicals: Kansas has a telescope on campus, and New Mexico has one out in the desert which ensures clear skies. Other options include Space Physics, and the physics of weather
•US students are encouraged to take humanities options
