“I discovered my passion for this subject whilst still at secondary school. I had a very supportive physics teacher who acknowledged and encouraged my interest in this most fundamental of sciences. He would organise live experiments that would involve light, matter and energy, the whole class would be involved and I became fascinated by this exciting new world I had discovered.
Other attractions are its versatility and value, it is a subject from which you can expand naturally into more specialised fields of academic research and is a qualification that is held in high regard by many employers. A degree in physics can open the door to a range of well paid careers in fields such as research, teaching, environmental conservation, development and heavy industry.
On a more personal level I want to continue studying physics in higher education because I enjoy the logical aspects of the subject, appreciate being surrounded by like minded physicists and take pleasure from being in a community of academics. My interest in physics also extends outside of academia, I regularly go to organised scientific shows and events which I find are an excellent way to make contact with people who have similar interests to me. On top of this I keep up to date with developments in the industry by subscribing to specialist journals and being a member of various scientific societies and organisations.
To date my experiences have laid the foundations for the further study of physics and various other scientific disciplines. I feel fully capable of making observations in a rational scientific manner and of being able to independently organise projects, design experiments, take accurate measurements and analyse results.
Although to date I have learnt a great deal I acknowledge that there is still much more for me to discover about physics and that is why I have submitted my application to enrol at your institution. Your university has a excellent reputation and it has been very successful in attracting the brightest students from around the world. This was confirmed to me by a recent walk around your university campus where I found it large enough to have excellent facilities whilst being small enough to have a friendly, supportive atmosphere. I feel that a physics degree qualification from your university will give me an excellent start to any future career.”
