We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This renowned course is designed to prepare students for PhD study in fundamental theoretical physics by bridging the gap between an undergraduate course and the research frontier.
The Theoretical Physics Group is internationally recognised for its contribution to our understanding of the unification of fundamental forces, the early universe, quantum gravity, supersymmetry, string theory, and quantum field theory.
The origins of the programme date back to the founding of the Theoretical Physics Group by Abdus Salam, one of Imperial’s Nobel Laureates.
Modules shown are for the current academic year and are subject to change depending on your year of entry.
