About the course

This course is for you if you’re interested in exploring the fields of atomic, molecular and optical physics as well as experimental particle physics.

How will I study?

You’ll learn through lectures, workshops and personal supervision. Your time is split equally between the project and modules. Your project culminates in a dissertation (with a contribution from a research talk).

The modules are assessed by problem sets, with either open-notes tests or unseen examinations. You’ll attend research seminars and contribute to your group’s discussions of the latest journal papers.

You can choose to study this course full time or part time.

Entry Requirements

A lower second-class (2.2) undergraduate honours degree or above in a physics-based subject (including mathematics and engineering degrees with significant modern physics content including quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and nuclear physics). Those requesting experimental projects must have laboratory experience, and evidence must be supplied, usually in the form of a reference, of competence in the laboratory. If you are a non-EEA or Swiss national we must receive your application by 1 August because you will need to obtain clearance by the UK Government Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) for this degree.
