Physics with Particle Physics

With the discovery of the Higgs Boson, and as the search for Physics beyond the Standard Model continues at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the study of particle physics remains more topical and relevant than ever before. On our four-year Physics with Particle Physics MSci course, we’ll cover everything found in our Physics course (F303/F300), but with special emphasis on the underlying Physics of fundamental particles, high-energy particle detectors and accelerator physics. Your final year project will be the chance to deepen your knowledge and appreciation for research methodologies in the area of particle physics and this can lead you directly to opportunities for postgraduate research study. You'll join a field trip to CERN as part of this course. We teach Physics in an accessible and rigorous style through small group tutorials, problem classes, lectures, laboratory and computing assignments, teamwork, and one-to-one teaching in our laboratories. So you’ll always have a close-knit support system around you. Our department is research-intensive, which means our teaching is informed by the most up-to-date research. Our world-class research laboratories are devoted to the search for Dark Matter, building next generation particle accelerators and enabling discoveries in nanophysics, quantum devices, ultralow temperatures, superconductors, new materials and other frontiers. Students study in our research laboratories in their final year. + We put a real emphasis on small group teaching – a close-knit, friendly and supportive environment with high staff-student ratio and an open door policy. + We enjoy a strong track record of high student satisfaction in the annual National Student Survey. + We’ve been awarded IOP Juno Champion and Athena SWAN silver awards for best practice in equality, promoting women in science and welcoming large cohorts of female students. + Our research-intensive department based at our Surrey campus – well away from the light pollution of the big city – allows our telescopes to provide the best observational astronomy in the University of London. + We also have close ties with, and conduct research at major international laboratories such as CERN, ISIS and Diamond, plus collaborations with other major institutions around the world. + This course is fully accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP)
