For students who wish to have a solid understanding of the laws of nature (the rules which govern how matter and energy interact on all scales) as a foundation for their scientific career, this topic will cover each of the fundamental areas of physics at depth. Material to be covered includes Astronomy and Cosmology, advanced mechanics of rotating bodies, advanced electromagnetism, special relativity and quantum mechanics. The laboratory work is integrated with lectures and fosters an 'exploration of principles' ethos, where the students are encouraged to explore and understand the influence of relevant parameters on the phenomena they are studying.
