You will select modules from a wide range of fundamental and applied physics topics. The application-focused modules are co-taught by practitioners in public service and industry to ensure that students gain real-world insight. A module in research skills will prepare you to apply your new knowledge and skills in an eleven-week research project undertaken during the summer. Your chosen research projects can open the door to many careers, not just further research. They will give you tangible experience of working independently and communicating your work effectively and efficiently in written form: key requirements in many professions.
Example module listing: introduction to biology and radiation biology; radiation physics; radiation measurement; detection instrumentation; radiation laboratory skills; experimental and professional skills for medical physics; research skills; non-linear physics; topics in theoretical physics; imaging and remote sensing; diagnostic applications of ionising radiation physics; radiation protection; extended group project; therapy physics; non-ionising radiation imaging; nuclear power and non-ionising radiation; environmental physics and environmental protection; astrophysical dynamics; quantum magnetism and superconductivity; advances in nanophotonics; research project and dissertation; special relativity; modern analytical techniques; nuclear astrophysics; light and matter; advanced quantum physics; cosmology and galaxy formation; semiconductor physics and technology.
Assessment is based on a combination of coursework and examination as well as a research project.
