Taught postgraduate study

Taught postgraduate study

The School of Physics and Astronomy introduced a series of Taught Masters degree programmes in 2010.  Several of these one-year MSc programmes are linked to the interdisciplinary themes identified as major research challenges for the 21st century.  All of these programmes start in September each year. In addition, those marked with a (*) offer a January intake to suitably qualified candidates.  Most of our programmes are accredited by the Institute of Physics. Accredited MSc programmes automatically meet the master's level education requirement for Chartered Physicist (CPhys) status. To fully meet the educational requirements for CPhys, graduates must also possess an IOP accredited undergraduate degree or equivalent.

To apply for these degrees, please see the following page.

Fee discounts and scholarships are available for these courses.  See this page for information on fees and funding.
