Helping you find a career in the Physics industry

From building the latest nanotechnology, up to investigating our galaxy through astrophysics, there are a huge number of opportunities within physics.

Most roles in this industry will require a degree in physics because you need a sophisticated understanding of scientific theories and how to apply them in a practical way. Chances are if you have landed on this page you already have this qualification.

So what’s next? After studying physics, many students choose to continue their studies and then enter the field of academic research. There are research opportunities available in physics across a huge number of sectors including aerospace (which is the most popular), medicine and education. A lot of companies have their own team dedicated to scientific research and development of their products that include physics specialists.

For higher level and specialised roles it is likely that you will need a master’s degree, or even a PhD.

However, the transferrable skills, such as complex problem solving and logical thinking, that are gained from a physics degree means that physics graduates are sought after in a range of other roles including accountancy, banking, computing, engineering, and marketing.


Skills & interests required for a career in Physics
For a career in physics most employers will expect you to have a degree in the subject or one that is closely related such as engineering, or applied sciences.

Working in physics you will likely need to have the ability to solve complex problems and be comfortable working with numbers. Many entry-level roles in physics will involve an element of data analytics.

Some other skills that will benefit you in physics include:

  • Research skills
  • Communication
  • Patience
  • Organisation
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Physics
The progression route that you take as a graduate in physics will largely depend on what you choose to specialise in. As you get more experience in your field, you will typically take on larger projects of increasing importance.
Tips for getting into the field
Source some work experience. This could be shadowing a physicist, or an unpaid placement, or you could find part-time work as a laboratory assistant.
How much can graduates earn in Physics?
STEM careers in general have the potential for high earnings, particularly if you become an expert in your chosen field. Some typical salaries for graduates in physics include:

  • Data analyst: £18,573 - £40,477
  • Laboratory assistant: £13,193 - £21,707
  • Physicist: £24,384 - £54,396
According to savethestudent.org, the average starting salary for a graduate in Physics is £26,312.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Physics?
With a degree in physics there are a huge number of opportunities available to you, but many specialised roles will require you to study a master’s, or even a PhD in physics.

However, if you’re not entirely sure which direction you would like to go in, source a job to gain some work experience and you can pursue further study later down the line.
