As a physics honours student you become a member of the School of Physical Sciences and part of a research group.

The Department of Physics engages in research across a broad range of topics, all with strong national and international connections. Whether you are interested in industry-related research, or some of the big questions in modern day physics, you will find a project to match your career goals and interests.

Physics at the University of Adelaide has consistently won the top grade for research performance in the government’s Excellence in Research for Australia surveys. Come and experience how research is undertaken in world-leading research groups.
