Welcome to the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow. We are interested in everything from the very small (sub-atomic particles) to the very large (the universe) and everything in between.

Our world-leading research allows us to be key partners in international collaborations of scientists, which results in ground breaking discoveries such as the Higgs boson and gravitational waves.

We study the puzzling behaviour of quantum systems, and develop powerful new devices for characterising the world around us. Our excitement about curiosity-driven and applied research informs teaching programmes, and offers a large choice of projects for postgraduate research.

Whether you are collaborating in research, studying as an undergraduate or postgraduate, or just visiting, we look forward to working with you.
