What can I do with...

...a physics degree?

Befuddled by your career options? This clever little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your physics degree.

Sectors

 

Having chosen to do a physics degree, you might believe that you’re destined to spend your professional life smashing particles together inside a huge metal doughnut. However, a physics degree will actually provide you with a fantastic platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors...

Skills

 

Your head might be crammed full of useful (and some not-so-useful) information, but your physics degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful skills…

Advanced I.T. Skills

Microsoft office? Child’s play! You’ve got highly developed I.T. skills that’d run rings around the average schmuck.

Analytical Skills

You’re better than Shearer and Hansen put together. You’re even better than Gary Neville. Fortunately, your top-notch analytical skills also extend beyond the world of football punditry.

Attention to Detail

You can spot a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can even spot a specific needle in a massive stack of needles. You’re just that sharp.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Creativity

You have the ability to come up with creative and innovative ideas. You’re so far outside the box you can’t even see the box. The box is merely a dot on the horizon.

Critical Thinking

When you’re presented with a problem or idea, you have the ability to think about it from a critical perspective. You’re not afraid to share your opinion.

Data Handling

You can compile, organise and analyse data. Qualitative data? Quantitative data? It doesn’t matter. You’ve got it nailed.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Logic

You ain’t no fool! Your approach to problem solving is characterised by reason and rationality.

Numeracy

Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.

Occupations

 

Like the scientists working at CERN, you should be on the verge of making a massive breakthrough. If you’re not quite there yet and still haven’t discovered that elusive ‘perfect career’, check out the different roles you could secure with your physics degree…
