We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The theories of general relativity and quantum mechanics have helped scientists and mathematicians understand nature and the universe at the most fundamental level. They can explain some of biggest scientific discoveries of the century, from gravitational waves to the Higgs boson, and have brought us ever closer to a 'theory of everything'.
This course has been created to equip graduates with advanced mathematical tools that can be used to explain the complex physical principles that describe the world around us.
You'll the freedom to choose from a selection of topics in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, statistics and data science. These modules are designed so that you can study the fundamental theories that govern the universe, and develop

"I worked under the supervision of Dr Sam Dolan on research related to the gravitational lensing of starlight, which is a key consequence of Einstein’s theory of relativity... The skills I gained are transferable not only to academic research, but also to a variety of careers, particularly those using evidence-based methods to develop long-term strategies."
