PHYSICS BACHELOR'S DEGREE (GRAU DE FÍSICA) AT UB

DESCRIPTION

The Physics bachelor’s degree is the most common way to start a career as a Physics researcher. In Spain, university degrees are divided into three stages. The first stage leads to a bachelor’s degree, the second to a university master’s degree and the third to a doctorate.

The Physics degree at the UB has a duration of 4 years, and starts after the student has finished his/her High School studies, although other possibilities are also considered. It has been designed according to the directives set by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and, as the rest of all UB bachelor's degree courses, it has adopted the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), in order to facilitate students' mobility and the comparison of students' study attainment across the EU. The Physics bachelor's degree at the UB has a study load of 240 ECTS. [+]

The student who successfully completes the Physics bachelor's degree will be considered to have acquired enough solid and general knowledge of Physics and will obtain an official university qualification called "Grau de física", which will enable him or her to access several job positions in private companies, public administration and High School Education. To continue with a research career, the student will have to undertake postgraduate studies. Other not so common starting points from which to begin a research career in Physics are Mathematics or Engineering bachelor's degrees.
