Taught modules

Develop your expertise with a broad range of specialist modules.

Whether you'd prefer to get stuck into the quantum weirdness of the subatomic world with elementary particle physics or appreciate the wonder of the universe as a whole with physical cosmology there's plenty to chose from.

Our modular courses start with the basics, gearing you up with things like modern physics, mathematics and quantum mechanics before progressing onto more specialised content aligned to our research interests.
