Department of Physics


Undergraduate study options

Are you interested in mechanics, waves or quantum physics? What about meteorology and wind? Photons, fibre optics and telecommunications? The stars? Then you're someone who will get a lot out of physics. With a physics course you can plot a learning pathway to enter a career pathway that will take you places you've never been before.

  • Tertiary Foundation Certificate

    If you don't feel sufficiently prepared for studying Physics at university level, the Tertiary Foundation Certificate at University of Auckland will help you gain the skills and confidence you will need for successful study at tertiary level.

  • Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Physics or Geophysics

    Geology and physics combine when you apply the principles of physics to study of the Earth. Geophysics ranges from the Earth's deep interior to its surface, oceans, and atmosphere.

  • Physics handbook

    Key things you need to know for studying physics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
