Postgraduate taught degrees

Study Physics & Astronomy

Studying with us offers you a fundamental understanding of the way the universe works, brings you to the forefront of technology, and provides the opportunity to work in world-leading research groups.

Our Masters programmes are all accredited by the Institute of Physics. 99% of our Physics research has been evaluated as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the latest Research Excellence Framework [2021].

Glasgow’s Institute for Gravitational Research was recently at the centre of a truly global research discovery which detected gravitational waves coming from two black holes, confirming Einstein’s theory of general relativity more than 100 years after his original prediction.

Our taught programmes provide an understanding of the principles and methods covering a variety of global challenges in the areas of energy, materials, emerging technologies and the environment. We offer a diverse portfolio of specialist and interdisciplinary programmes that reflect our research strengths, successful academic collaborations and professional accreditation, all at a level appropriate for a professional physicist.
