Particle Physics

The course covers all-important and up-to-date topics of modern experimental and theoretical particle physics, and provides a sound footing for further studies in this field. A substantial project component allows you to carry out a research project under the individual supervision of a member of faculty (refer to Faculty interests). This MSc can be taken in an experimental or theoretical mode. Instruction is by lectures, seminars and personal supervision.

Entry requirements

A first or upper second-class undergraduate honours degree in a physics- or mathematics-based subject.

Assessment methods

Assessment of this MSc is made up of 50 per cent on a research project and 50 per cent on lecture modules. The research project culminates in your dissertation (with a contribution from a research talk). There are also six lecture modules, typically assessed by a mixture of problem sets with either an open-notes test or an unseen examination. A distinction can be awarded on the basis of excellence in both the research project and the lecture modules.
