Undergraduate

Welcome to the School of Physics. Some of you will be studying a physics major in your Bachelor of Science degree. Others may be taking one or two physics courses as electives, or as part of your degree from another Faculty.

Here you will find information about the courses we offer, your lecturers, and assessment.

In the first instance, all undergraduate enquiries should be directed to the online webform (UNSW.to/webforms)

  • First Year Teaching Unit is responsible for the teaching of all first year physics courses and some of the General Education Electives taught by the School of Physics. Any enquiry regarding first year physics courses (including application for exemption, etc.) should be directed to the First Year Teaching Unit, not individual lecturers or tutors. 

Alternatively, first year students can contact the office either by phone or in person
