University of Sussex
There are opportunities for graduate students in many areas of modern experimental and theoretical physics. 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 2 years, experimental and theoretical research students are required to take at least 5 postgraduate modules, although allowance may be made for previous postgraduate study.
A 1st- or upper 2nd-class undergraduate Honours degree in physics. Applications are also encouraged from students of other disciplines, for example mathematical physics, chemical physics or materials science.
Assessment of modules is by coursework and/or unseen examination.
Studentships are available from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC); some graduate teaching assistantships or EU studentships may also be available; there is normally a small amount of paid work available for teaching in laboratories and for marking.
