Physics Module Pages

This page provides a quick route to the syllabus for each physics module, and to any associated web page.

moodle page This icon denotes that the module webpage is on Moodle, the university's virtual learning environment. Clicking on the icon will take you to the log in screen; use your usual university log in and password.

All module webpages have easy-to-remember shortcuts:

warwick.ac.uk/modulecode

e.g. warwick.ac.uk/px101 for PX101 Quantum Phenomena.

Covid

The syllabus links are to the University's module catalogue, which lists the learning outcomes and course content correctly. However, the entries in the catalogue may not be updated to show all changes relating to the delivery and type of assessment made in response to Covid. These will be explained on module homepages.
