Course summary

Our Physics MSci will give you a deep understanding of all the fundamental aspects of physics. In your final year, you will work on a research project aligned to one of our research groups and experience the excitement of research through supervised projects. You also have the opportunity to transfer to the Study Abroad pathway and spend your third year at a partner institution before returning to King’s for the final year. This depends on you reaching a certain grade average and being accepted by a partner university.

Key benefits

  • Join an award-winning department: six former staff and students won Nobel Prizes.
  • Research lies at the heart of our department, so you’ll be taught by internationally renowned scientists.
  • You’ll have access to our newly refurbished laboratory facilities, located in the heart of London.
  • Study the skies using King’s own rooftop observatory and telescope.

For your first three years of the course you will follow very similar modules as those taking our Physics BSc. This will give you an excellent grounding in the fundamental aspects of physics you will need for further study and research. In your fourth year, you will be able to access a wide range of specialised physics modules with other University of London institutions, and the MSci project will give you experience of a genuine large-scale research project. Problem solving and project work are important elements of this course and you will learn teamwork, group organisation and the skills of oral and poster presentations. We also encourage you to work with a school, to experience teaching and develop the skill of presenting information to a non-expert audience. You will be allocated a personal tutor who will play a key role in helping you to get the most out of your studies, providing support and encouragement for your time at university. Personal tutors provide you with the opportunity to periodically take stock of your learning, academic progress and general wellbeing as you progress through your studies, offering guidance on how to seek further support if you need it, and how to access the range of opportunities available to you at King's.

Employability

Our Physics graduates are in high demand because employers recognise the wide range of skills that they possess. We train physicists to be good problem solvers, to think logically and to apply mathematical and computational techniques to real problems.
