The taught component of the programme has 2 elements. 2 compulsory courses plus a selection of core courses, which bring all students to an advanced level in subjects such as: general relativity; cosmology; statistical physics; condensed matter physics; quantum field theory and the Standard Model of particle physics. There is also a choice from a wider pool of courses, including specialist courses in mathematics, computing and climate science. Following the taught component of the programme, students undertake a 3-month research project, which leads to a dissertation, drawn from the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, or from industry. In the latter case, students will have the opportunity to undertake part of their research in a company affiliated to the Higgs Centre.
