Course summary

With the discovery of Higgs Boson, and as the search for Physics beyond the Standard Model continues at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the study of particle physics remains more topical and relevant than ever before.On our four-year Physics with Particle Physics MSci course, we’ll cover everything found in our Physics course (F303/F300), but with special emphasis on the underlying Physics of fundamental particles, high-energy particle detectors and accelerator physics. Your final year project will be the chance to deepen your knowledge and appreciation for research methodologies in the area of particle physics and this can lead you directly to opportunities for postgraduate research study. You'll join a field trip to CERN as part of this course.We teach Physics in an accessible and rigorous style through small group tutorials, problem classes, lectures, laboratory and computing assignments, teamwork, and one-to-one teaching in our laboratories. So you’ll always have a close-knit support system around you.Our department is research-intensive, which means our teaching is informed by the most up-to-date research. Our world-class research laboratories are devoted to the search for Dark Matter, building next generation particle accelerators and enabling discoveries in nanophysics, quantum devices, ultralow temperatures, superconductors, new materials and other frontiers. Students study in our research laboratories in their final year.Taught by world-leading experts in areas like the Higgs boson, Top quark and future accelerators.Visit CERN with our academics and researchers based at CERN, for a unique view of the world’s largest scientific experiments.Final year research project within particle theory, dark matter, ATLAS or accelerator physics groups.Advanced courses in statistical data analysis and machine learning, critical for understanding high energy physics data and complex problems in the real world.
