Course summary

The Theoretical Physics MSc is an intensive, research-led course in which you will examine basic topics in theoretical and mathematical physics such as general relativity and quantum field theory, before exploring advanced topics such as string theory, supersymmetry and integrable quantum field theory. You will be exposed to a wide range of research techniques and have the opportunity to conduct and write up your own project. This MSc is a demanding research-informed course that gives you a coherent, comprehensive introduction to the building blocks of modern theoretical physics and the opportunity to explore more advanced topics.

Many of our graduates go on to start PhD studies in theoretical physics at various universities in the United Kingdom and abroad, including with our group here at King’s, for which the MSc is particularly well tailored.
