      My degree was Physics, so everything was a little bit sciencey!
      At university you do two sets of modules a year, so for my undergrad I did:

      Year 1
      – Mechanics
      – Electricity and Magnetism
      – Atomic and Thermal Physics
      – Astronomy
      – Information Skills
      – Mathematics 1&2
      – Laboratories 1&2
      – Computing
      – Mechanics of Materials

      Year 2
      – Quantum Mechanics
      – Fields
      – Waves
      – Solid State Physics
      – Nuclear Physics
      – Thermal Physics
      – Electronics
      – Mathematics 3&4
      – Laboratories 3&4

      Year 3
      – Statistical and Low-Temperature Physics
      – Surfaces, Thin Films and High Vacuum
      – Elementary Particle Physics
      – Quantum Physics
      – Climate Physics
      – Final year project (dissertation)

      Hi Millsy,

      Good question! Although I did a science degree as well (Medical Physiology), I did a few non-science modules aswell! I did a module where I mentored children from from secondary schools, and also did another module where I taught fun science to kids in classrooms! I enjoyed it lots! 🙂

      I took some linguistics subjects, this is the study of languages. Speech therapists, audiologists (people who test hearing) and language teachers usually take these subjects. It was really interesting. I would have loved to be able to learn other things as well, like philosophy or literature or history. Maybe one day I’ll have time to take an open university course on these.
