Theoretical Physics

The MPhys Physics degree is a four-year scheme intended primarily for those wishing to become professional physicists. It is designed to be comparable with other European physics degrees. The decision whether to register for a B.Sc. or M.Phys. can be left until after Level 1. Physicists seek to answer the big questions: Can the conditions that existed a few billionths of a second after the Big bang be recreated in the lab? How do fundamental constituents of matter such as quarks and leptons interact? How did the Universe begin? And can we understand what space and time are made of? Students gain unique insights into cutting edge areas of research, including superconductivity, nanotechnology, superstring theory and antimatter. We have a flexible modular course structure, allowing for transfers between different schemes up until the start of the 3rd year, with the final year of our MPhys programmes involving specialised courses and a full semester working on a cutting edge research project, including the possibility of carrying this out at CERN. Research projects in areas including cold matter, lasers and optics, antimatter, nanoscale technology, all with expert supervision. We are a very friendly and caring Department in a traditional University.
