New General Entry Physics route into DCU Physics programmes
A new route is available for those who wish to study physics at Dublin City University. They can gain an in-depth foundation in physics in the first year of study and then choose a specialist degree programme at the end of the year.
There are three specialist options: Applied Physics Physics with Astronomy and Physics with Biomedical Sciences. This allows students to gain a wider knowledge of the foundations of classical and modern physics, and then take the time to choose where they would like to focus for the rest of their degree programme.
