We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Imperial’s Department of Physics is one of the largest and most prestigious in the UK.
We have 150 academic staff, over 200 postdocs, 900 undergraduate and 500 postgraduate students. The Department has hosted three Nobel Prize winners in the past, and is currently home to three Knights of the Realm:
• Sir Peter Knight
• Sir John Pendry
• Sir Jim Virdee
We're also home to 16 Fellows of the Royal Society, including Professors Michele Dougherty, Joanna Haigh and Jenny Nelson.
Research within the Department is carried out by nine research groups:
• Condensed Matter Theory
• Experimental Solid State Physics
• High Energy Physics
• Plasma Physics
• Quantum Optics and Laser Science
• Space and Atmospheric Physics
• Theoretical Physics
