About the course

The MSc by Research in Theoretical Physics allows you to undertake a year long individual programme of personally and professionally enriching research.

Your theoretical physics research project will be shaped by participation in activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratory activity and field work, as well as your involvement in one of our established research groups.

While this research programme in Theoretical Physics usually finishes after a year, it can be used to progress to the second year of a PhD degree in the appropriate circumstances.

Over 80% of our research outputs from experimental and theoretical groups were judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014-2021).

We have three main Physics research groups.
