Theoretical Physics addresses the meaning of everything by employing the language of mathematics to understand the universe. From quantum information and grand unified theories of particle physics to dark matter and cosmology, this subject can take you anywhere.
Our four-year MPhys Theoretical Physics degree is ideally suited to students wanting to become professional physicists. You will learn how fundamental physics and mathematical techniques are applied to understand advances in quantum information, machine learning, cosmology, semiconductors, lasers, nuclear & particle physics.
You will explore the big questions, such as how did the universe begin, what are space and time made of and is it possible to recreate in a laboratory the conditions that existed seconds after the big bang?
You will work on a year long advanced MPhys project and learn how to do research at the cutting edge in these fields, under the supervision of internationally recognised theoretical physicists.
