Gain in-depth specialist knowledge of how to apply physics to understand the origins and evolution of the universe. Learn about the fundamental theoretical physics describing the intertwining of space, time, matter and energy. Topics covered include exoplanets, galaxies, cosmology, stars and stellar evolution, general relativity and high energy astrophysics.
Youâll study physical systems under conditions that exceed anything we could conceivably create on Earth, such as extra solar planets or the extreme end states of stellar evolution. Youâll learn how to assemble evidence from astronomy to build theoretical models of the cosmos.
Youâll graduate with the knowledge and skills of an independent scientist, with sound mathematical and experimental expertise, and the ability to solve complex problems on your own.
The Master of Physics (MPhys) degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc courses, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You'll study masters-level units and carry out a major research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.
Application deadline details:
Bath University - where, thanks to the name, some societies are called BRA, BUMS and BUST and being part of them is just as much of a laugh. It takes at most a 15 minute walk from one end of the campus to another, you'll pass the many things that the campus has to offer. The lake, the library, the coffee shop, the canteen, people singing and dancing, the post office, the shop, the bar.. you name it. The university came top for satisfaction in 2013 and the city is one of the safest places to be. If the uni doesn't have something the city will, and both are absolutely beautiful.
Everyone is so friendly. If you feel lonely, lost, or homesick or have any issues there are people here who are willing to help, and many students are willing to help you. It isn't as overwhelming as it seems, you can do anything you dreamed of doing. so far, it's been great, i've met loads of new people every day.
