This module is for students with an interest in entering teaching, and involves a weekly placement in a local school under the mentorship of a physics teacher. The student will engage both in observation and in various teaching activities. The module will be assessed on the basis of the mentor's report and on written project work.
This module covers nuclear physics, including applications of fission and fusion, together with modern developments in many-body quark physics.
Computer simulations play a fundamental role in Physics. This course will introduce the the main techniques used in the field; in particular, Monte Carlo calculations. The student will also be equipped with the needed computing skills.
