University Bows to the Laws of Physics

Newcastle University was widely criticised last year when it cut its pure physics course because of reduced funding and a lack of interest from students.

But now it says that it will introduce a degree in natural sciences that will allow students to study courses including physics along with modules that are more relevant to a scientific career in industry or research.
