What can I do with a physics degree?

Despite physicists being some of the most sought after and well-paid graduates across the UK, many students and teachers still struggle to answer the question: what can I do with a physics degree?

The Ogden Trust has developed some short videos to give you some ideas of potential careers using a physics degree and how you might get there. They can be used by students to discover the day to day tasks involved in a number of careers from engineer, data analyst to astrophysicist.

  • John Arnold: entrepreneur and software developer
  • Dr Laura Harkness-Brennan: nuclear physics lecturer at the University of Liverpool
  • Mike Buttery: project scientist at ESR Technology
  • Geraldine Cox: Artist in Residence at the Physics Department, Imperial College, London
  • Charlotte Davis: graduate trainee at AMEC

  • Scot Hickenbottom: PhD student at Liverpool John Moores University
  • Dr Heather Williams: Senior Medical Physicist for Nuclear Medicine at Central Manchester University Hospitals; Founding Director of ScienceGrrl
