The University of Southampton

Sarah Cronin 2010

PhD in Medical Physics, Institute of Cancer Research

I really enjoyed studying physics at the University of Southampton. It was a good mix of theoretical work and practical labs.

I love how all the theory that I learned in my undergraduate studies can be applied to real-life problems.

There were many options when choosing modules, everything from maths to history of science to medical physics and nano-science. I loved the variety in my degree.

Since graduating last year I have begun a PhD in Medical Physics at the Institute of Cancer Research.

I love how all the theory that I learned in my undergraduate studyies can be applied to real-life problems.

Physics is about problem solving, finding out how stuff works and why things happen. I enjoy a challenge and like working out logic puzzles; this is why I chose physics.

As well as this, I knew that choosing physics would teach me skills which could be applied to many other disciplines, opening many doors for me and so widening employment prospects after University.
