Advanced Physics

The course gives you the opportunity to explore and master theoretical, computational and experimental physics skills with wide application.

Our 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 and computational physics; quantum optics and quantum information; complexity science; physics and the life sciences; solid-state physics; plasma physics.

The knowledge you gain in the taught components is then put to use in a cutting-edge research project, which can be theoretical, computational or experimental.

Entry requirements

Postgraduate Diploma - PgDip: Minimum second-class honours degree, or international equivalent, in physics (Mathematics and Physics, Theoretical Physics, Astrohphysics, Engineering Physics etc) or a related subject. Applicants from an engineering discipline need to have had sufficient exposure to fundamental physics courses in quantum mechanics and electromagnetism, or need to demonstrate that they can acquire the necessary background. Contact us about your case and the possibility of conversion courses. You must have an English language minimum score of IELTS 6.0 (with no component below 5.5).
