Physics





This page displays all the available documents for the course Physics.

Physics (PHY315114) has a complexity level of TQA 3 and a size value of 15: [contributes to the calculation of Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks (ATAR)]


Physics is a fundamental science that endeavours to explain all the natural phenomena that occur in the universe. Its power lies in the use of a comparatively small number of assumptions, models, laws and theories to explain a wide range of phenomena, from the incredibly small to the incredibly large. Physics has helped to unlock the mysteries of the universe and provides the foundation of understanding upon which modern technologies and all other sciences are based.

Students learn how an understanding of physics is central to the identification of, and solutions to, some of the key issues facing an increasingly globalised society. They consider how physics contributes to diverse areas in contemporary life, such as engineering, renewable energy generation, communication, development of new materials, transport and vehicle safety, medical science, an understanding of climate change, and the exploration of the universe. Studying physics will enable students to become citizens who are better informed about the world around them and who have the critical skills to evaluate and make evidence-based decisions about current scientific issues.

Quality Assurance


The following processes will be facilitated by the TQA to ensure there is:
  • a match between the standards of achievement specified in the course and the skills and knowledge demonstrated by students
  • community confidence in the integrity and meaning of the qualification.


Processes - the Authority gives course providers feedback about any systematic differences in the relationship of their internal and external assessments and, where appropriate, seeks further evidence through audit and requires corrective action in the future.
