Course content

This course – delivered by our expert faculty – gives you a sound footing for further studies in this field.

Our research lies at the forefront of fundamental physics, and this MSc allows you to explore modern experimental and theoretical particle physics. You can choose to take an experimental or theoretical focus, through subjects such as:

  • the theoretical understanding of space, time and matter
  • analysing the results of world-leading particle physics experiments
  • data-intensive science and machine learning.

The Department is a founder member of SEPnet, the South East Physics Network of physics departments, which supports vital research, teaching and development in the South East.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19.
