Course content

This EuroMasters MSc is a unique programme that offers you unparalleled freedom and opportunity in your studies. You can choose from two programme pathways – Physics and Astrophysics – and have a free choice of modules in your first year before going on to a year of research, working with leading physicists on pioneering projects.

During this course you will deepen your understanding of your preferred specialism (either physics or astrophysics) in your first year, choosing modules from a wide variety of topics at the forefront of fundamental and applied physics research.

In your second year you will join one of our research groups - which may include working in a research laboratory such as CERN or RAL. We have four main research centres:

  • Particle Physics Research Centre
  • Centre for Research in String Theory
  • Centre for Condensed Matter and Materials Physics
  • Astronomy Unit

This programme is available within the South East Physics university network (SEPnet) - and can be studied through any of the universities within the network, or through two of the universities. This means you can apply to spend your first or second year with Queen Mary, or to spend both years with us. The Institute where you spend your second year will award your EuroMasters degree.

You will also benefit from the combined expertise of SEPnet’s universities through video conferencing, SEPnet events and GRADnet, the largest physics
