Course summary


By pursuing your here you’ll not only get to explore fundamental physics using state-of-the-art technology. As a full member of our research groups you’ll also be part of a large multinational collaboration, living and working at an international research facility in the UK or overseas.

This generally takes 3 to 4 years to complete and requires you to submit a thesis, which is examined orally and must be on an original topic relevant to one of the following fields:

Accelerator Science and Technology
Condensed Matter Physics
Nuclear Physics
Particle Physics.

During your first year you’ll attend specialist courses provided by research-active staff members in each of our research groups. These will bring you up to the level required for frontline international research.

Additional courses, provided by the University Graduate School, will cover general research, presentation, and other transferable skills - and there are summer schools funded by the Research Councils that fund our work.

We’ve excellent facilities here in Liverpool, but most of our PhD students spend one to two years at international and national research facilities in Europe, America or Japan. Many present their work at international conferences and in scientific journal publications.

Completing a research project takes dedication, good communication skills and team work. The qualification and skills you’ll gain will make you highly employable.

Our research interests closely match our research themes.
