Course summary

Our MSci course combines Bachelors and Masters' level physics modules so you can study more advanced areas of physics.You'll develop a deep understanding of fundamental physics, from astronomical phenomena to quantum mechanics. As the course progresses, you'll gain knowledge in classical physics plus advancements in modern physics.Physics at the University of Dundee has had a tremendous impact on the modern world. We paved the way for the creation of LCD screens in the 70s and 80s. More recently, we have helped to understand how extra-solar planets form, and helped build optical diagnostic devices for CERN.Much of what you learn will relate to research that our staff carry out in fields such as biophysics, advanced materials, and photonics.At Levels 4 and 5, you'll carry out a personal project involving practical experience in a research laboratory. For example, you could develop optical techniques to examine cancerous tissue. Or you may investigate the behaviour of positrons in materials to identify missing atom defects that degrade performance.Our high staff-to-student ratio fosters a friendly environment and approachable lecturers.Our Physics society runs regular social events. They have organised trips to CERN, Munich, and Amsterdam as well as the annual Physics Ball. You can meet with students from all year groups to help guide you through the more challenging aspects of the course.
