Four divisions – Nanoscience, Optics, Plasmas and the Institute of Photonics – all contribute research-based teaching expertise to the course. You can choose taught elements relevant to your career interests from a wide range of topics, including: theoretical & computational physics; quantum optics and quantum information; complexity science; physics and the life sciences; solid-state physics; plasma physics.
You'll put the knowledge gained in the taught components to use in a cutting-edge research project, which can be theoretical, computational or experimental.
You can exit after 9 months with a PgDip.
First or second-class Honours degree in physics (Mathematics and Physics, Theoretical Physics, Astrohphysics, Engineering Physics) or other related subject.
