There's a lot of what's, where's etc. for anyone to give an informed opinion, however, physics is a good degree to have and with a DD who has graduated with a physics degree there are plenty of opportunities for her.

Obviously your DC may be absolutely sure of his / her decision but...
Seek advice and information from the universities your DC is interested in and from DC's teachers. It may be worth considering a straight physics degree (3 or 4 yr) and then post graduate study in a field that is of interest, and importantly more specific to DC's career or research ambitions.

3 or 4 years of degree level physics can enlighten a student to the many opportunities that they may not have even thought possible before they embarked on university level study.

Having a straight physics degree will not be a barrier to a student who wants to enter the field of quantum / nuclear physics afterwards.

Think about keeping his / her options open for as long as possible. Quite a few courses run yrs 1 and 2 the same and specialise in Y3 so maybe this is something to ask about.
:D

Also, if your child has a thing for 'nuclear science'... :shock: An engineering degree (chemical, electrical, mechanical etc.) may be more useful. :wink:

I worked in the nuclear industry for a while.
Most of those I worked with where mech or civil engineers, a couple of chemical and one electrical. Only knew one person who had a degree in anything remotely nuclear related.
