The normal entry requirement for a PhD in the School is the equivalent of a British first class honours BA/SSc/EEng in physics or a related subject, or a more advanced qualification such as MSci, MMath or MSc/MA.
Our International Office publishes a list of countries/regions for which we have admissions information online. Please see our central QMUL pages for international students. We use UKNARIC to check the equivalency of International and European qualifications.
Non-native English speakers are required to have a minimum of IELTS (International English Language Testing Service): 6.5 overall, with a minimum of 5.5 in each category, or its equivalent.
Students that have yet to take an English proficiency test may still apply and will be made a conditional offer subject to meeting the minimum requirement for English proficiency.
QMUL offers a range of pre-sessional and in-sessional English language courses for students who have not quite reached the required standard of language ability, or for those wishing to improve their English language and study skills.
