Gain an excellent all-round education in physics while specialising in the fundamental particles and forces that make up our universe.
In the first year youâll build a solid foundation in theoretical and experimental physics, with a focus on particle physics over the second and third years. Youâll grow your understanding of the fundamentals of the subatomic world, learning to apply quantum mechanics to describe the behaviour of particles. Contemporary topics include the search for the Higgs boson and new physics beyond the standard model.
Teaching on the programme benefits from the Schoolâs involvement with some of the worldâs largest particle physics experiments, including the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and the T2K neutrino facility in Japan.
You can also take option modules reflecting the Schoolâs full range of expertise across physics and astronomy â mix and match to suit your aims and interests.
Youâll develop practical skills in statistical data analysis, detector technology and programming that can be applied in commerce, industry or research.
In your final year, youâll further develop your interests within particle physics through your independent research project, supervised by one of the Schoolâs particle physicists.
