iGCSE Physics (International GCSE) – Exam Included

This Course at a Glance

  • Learn about the universe, its wonders and the life that exists within it
  • Gain an understanding of atoms, stars, planets and galaxies
  • Globally recognised GCSE equivalent qualification 
  • Progress to higher education
  • 100% online study
  • Exams included
 

About Your Course

The universe is both complex and incredible, and for those who are inquisitive about the workings of our world and what exists beyond, studying Physics will help satisfy your curiosity. As the subject that is dedicated to explaining life, you will understand the workings of everything from a can opener to more complex creations like cars and natural events like earthquakes and black holes.
 
As such a fascinating subject, it naturally leads to many captivating careers that explore the unknown. With the right qualification, you could become an Astronomer, Geophysicist, Meteorologist or even a Nenotechnologist! An ideal way to get started towards these roles is by studying an International GCSE (iGCSE) in Physics, as a Level 2 qualification, you will be able to gain the higher level qualifications required for these areas of employment.
 
The course covers a dynamic range of topics such as forces and motion, electricity, energy resources and transfers, magnetism, radioactivity and astrophysics. Over the course of these modules, you will learn about unifying patterns and themes in Physics and be able to use them in new and changing situations, improving your analytical and logic skills. The course also caters to the need for complementary mathematical skills by covering a range of mathematical areas.
 
Extra care and attention have also been paid to ensure the online content is interesting and engaging, plus, the course has also been verified as adequate preparation for those continuing to further study in Physics and those aiming to work in a Physics-related field.
