I've got a few questions about the (QFFF) Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces MSc at Imperial College.
This is my background:
- I study at Sapienza University of Rome and I just finished my 2nd year of the 3 year "laurea" (the only italian first level degree, equivalent to Bachelor's degree) with Physics. The department of physics is pretty good: according to world university ranking it is 1st in Italy and 8th in Europe.
- I studied some advanced Theoretical Physics as a hobby during these 2 years.
- I was selected for the excellence program for undergraduate students of my department. It consists in a set of 3 advanced individual programs, organized by the prof you want. I completed just the first one about tensorial algaebra, a little of general topology and differential geometry with integration on differential manifolds and bundles.
- My grades at present are pretty good. I have an average score of 29.15/30, so I expect a final score of about 110/110.
- How hard is the course to get into?
- Is unrealistic to expect to be selected?
- What can I do to maximize the probability of being selected during the next year?
... and the ones that won't
