Research & Teaching

Our world-class research ranges from the first instants of the Big Bang to mapping the universe at the largest scales; we develop and test theories of fundamental physics at the Large Hadron Collider and other multinational experiments; and we explore and exploit the strange properties of atoms and ions for the quantum technologies of the future.

We offer a wide range of taught degree courses to suit individual skills and interests in a close-knit and sociable department, taught by our inspiring and enthusiastic teaching staff, many of whom are directly involved in cutting-edge research.

The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex has a well establish outreach programme. Running over 120 events each year, the aim is to encourage more students to study physics at A level and beyond.

The University of Sussex is part of SEPnet, the South East Physics Network, which enables us to do more to promote physics throughout the region and to offer support to those teaching Physics in the South East. Each year, we at Sussex work with approximately 4000 students from 100 different schools and colleges with our variety of different physics and astronomy activities.

We have a variety of activities, workshops and talks available to schools and other interested parties. They have all been designed for a range of age groups (either Key Stage 3, 4 or 5, A-level students or the general public) and are presented by members of the Department (either a researcher, research student, postgraduate or undergraduate student). Most of our activities can be presented either at the University of Sussex or possibly in an alternative location (unless stated below, and if within a reasonable travel time of the University).
