Physics

Students find that almost any scientific problem can be approached using physics, and as a result there are many hybrid disciplines such as astrophysics, biophysics and geophysics. Physics’ application to other sciences means that it is an ideal starting point for entry into almost every branch of science, engineering and technology.
