I am in year 12 currently and am looking to study physics at university. I currently take maths, physics, and chemistry and am predicted AAB in that order, but am targeting AAA. I am looking into specialised MSc courses such as particle physics at QMUL, medical physics at KCL, physics with nanoscience at Nottingham, physics with photonics at Southampton. I a, especially interested in particle physics. where is best to study this. Thanks

First off this should be MSci or MPhys - MSc is exclusively a postgraduate qualification.
Secondly be aware that even though these courses might appear to be "specialised", your first two years of the degree will probably be 90% the same as any other physics course at the same university. It's only in 3rd year onwards that you can actually hone in on a particular area. And even if you were just doing the straight physics course you could probably still do the same modules. I think Southampton might be a bit more restrictive though.

I don't think any one person can tell you where the best place to study is, since people only really know what it's like at their university so it's just something you'll have to decide for yourself based on what you can find out.

my mistake the are MSci and i have read the course structures so I know what is taught when in the course. I am more interested in whether there is anywhere else i haven't mentioned that is well known and accessible to my grades.

Hey guys, I will be graduating this summer with a B.Eng electronic engineering and telecommunications degree. I am interested in nanoscience and have been awarded two offers for it
1. MSc. Nanotechnology from UCL
2. MRes. Nanomaterials from imperial college
I'm a bit confused with which one to go with, as i am from an electronics background and need to find employment post this degree. The one at UCL is offered by the electronics schools whereas the one in imperial is by the chemistry department. Although imperial has a higher employability rate over UCL do you think the research course is a good option to go in for?
Will the research degree add some weight over a normal MSc. Degree? And do you think UCL is far behind Imperial

You should make a separate thread for this
