Course content

This Particle Physics MSc will enable you to examine the fundamental properties of the universe and gain a profound understanding of the world around us. You’ll be working at the frontier of a subject that has seen some of the 21st century’s greatest scientific discoveries.This MSc provides a comprehensive understanding of the field, while also keeping you up-to-date with the very latest developments in research.

Over the duration of the course, you’ll gain a deep knowledge of the Standard model of particle physics and cover topics ranging from how to draw a Feynman diagram, data analysis in particle physics, computer programming in modern science and how to apply quantum mechanical principles to the sub-atomic and sub-nuclear physics.

You’ll complete a specialist independent piece of research and join a thriving, friendly research community, with a busy schedule of research seminars, colloquia, meetings and workshops, so you can make the most of the specialist research skills you’ll develop on this course.

We pride ourselves on our collaborations and networks: we are a member of SEPnet, which among other advantages, gives you access to GRADnet, the largest physics postgraduate school in England.
