Something completely different

"I reckon that physicists can do pretty much anything. Our training can be applied to almost any activity, and it allows us to see things in ways that might not be obvious to others"

Simon Singh, science writer and broadcaster.

Physics provides such a broad training that whatever career you have in mind, physics will stand you in good stead. All employers value the skills that physics develops: an ability to grasp things quickly, a determination to find coherent answers, along with problem-solving, analytical, mathematical and IT skills. Studying physics is an excellent way of keeping your options open.
