Physics Closure will hit Economy

Physics at Reading

This proposed closure is bad for Reading and it is bad for the UK economy. A few years ago the Quality Assurance Assessment placed Reading as one of the top 6 Departments in the Country. Who is going to be teaching future physicists if we close one of the top department for teaching physics? Who is going to training future physics teachers and researchers?

The Royal Society, the Institute of Physics and the Government have all identified the critical role of Physics for economic survival in the UK.

In April 2006 the University of Reading identified Physics as crucial to its future plans. Now it wants to close it!

There are alternatives - lets keep it open by exploring other options.
