Course info


Our Physics MRes gives you advanced research skills and knowledge in physics and prepares you for a PhD or a career in a commercial research and development (R&D) environment.

About this course

Our Physics MRes gives you:

advanced research skills and knowledge in physics
problem-solving skills
quantitative analysis knowledge

You'll be suitable for the programme if you have a BSc in physics, or a closely related subject such as mathematics, chemistry or engineering.

A major part of the programme is to work within a research group. You'll employ modern techniques and equipment to tackle a problem of fundamental or technological importance.

What you'll learn

During the taught part of the programme you will gain:

advanced knowledge and understanding your chosen area of physics research
an understanding of the core principles of research

Depending on your topic, this may include:

training in fabrication and characterisation of advanced materials in cleanroom facilities
modules in quantum fluids, astrophysics and geophysics, and solid-state physics
training in advanced programming and using high performance computing facilities
training in experimental analytic techniques such as spectroscopy

You will also receive training in general research skills and principles, and other professional skills.

Your development

You will develop the advanced research skills and knowledge during the taught element of the programme. The initial modules train and encourage you to take ownership of your own learning.

You'll be able to use these skills you develop to tackle a research project of technological or fundamental importance. The extended project will provide excellent opportunities for independent learning and critical thinking.

During the programme, you will develop a broad range of in-demand technical skills for your future career in academia, industry or business.
