Course content

On the MSc Physics course you will develop a rounded education across the breadth of physics with an in-depth research project, supported by expert academics. What does a 21st Century physicist look like? You will learn to communicate to a broad audience and make physics accessible for all on current topics in physics. You will present your understanding through innovative techniques including vlogging, infographics, patents, apps, outreach experiments and articles for The Conversation.

You will develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge in a specialist area of physics on the MRes Physics course, according to your personal aspirations. You will combine taught modules with a year-long extended project whereby the course will help you gain extensive knowledge in a particular subject area, as you develop vital research skills.

You will be taught by experienced academics discussing topica at the forefront of the industry such as nanotechnology, space weather and upper atmosphere and applications for micro-fluidic fundamentals.
