Lecture modules form an essential part of your training. These are given by physics faculty members, assisted by research fellows and visiting members of faculty from various research institutions. In this way a very wide range of topics can be studied.
During their first two years, experimental and theoretical research students are required to take at least five postgraduate modules, although allowance may be made for previous postgraduate study. Assessment of modules is by coursework and/or unseen examination.
