We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters Degrees in Physics focus on investigating and understanding the workings of the universe and of the physical matter and processes operating within it - on Earth and beyond.
This involves understanding forces such as gravity, the behaviour of different atomic and sub-atomic particles and the fundamental properties of light and energy.
Programmes may be taught degrees (usually awarding an MSc, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma) or research-based (usually awarding an MRes or MPhil). Entry requirements will usually include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate Physical Science subject.
Despite being an academically advanced and technically demanding postgraduate subject area, Physics lends itself to a range of more vocational professions. Various industrial and commercial companies include roles that draw on advanced physical science skills. You could work on designing new computer equipment, consumer technology or even military hardware.
Of course, academic career paths are available too. A Masters in Physics can offer a route into further postgraduate research in these subject areas, with the option to continue on to a PhD and perhaps a role within a university.
Whatever you choose to do, you'll come away from your degree with an impressive qualification. Employers in all areas will recognise the value of a challenging postgraduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subject such as Physics.
