This prestigious course is tailored to very able graduates who wish to deepen their knowledge of physics, and are looking to pursue a research career within a university, industrial or national research laboratory. The course is open to both physicists and students from mathematics, chemistry or engineering disciplines, provided they have a sufficiently strong physics and mathematics background.
The MSc builds upon the existing Master’s programmes and 4th year lecture modules, with new advanced teaching and project elements designed specifically to further develop research skills. The 12-month full-time programme consists of lecture courses and project work. This is followed by a three-month supervised project in a specialist area, drawn from the wide range of research activity carried out within the Department or at an external research laboratory or company.
