The Physics MSc at King's College London is an interdepartmental course that covers significant research elements of rapidly developing and exciting fields of particle physics and cosmology, experimental biophysics and nanotechnology as well as theory and simulation of condensed matter. This course will equip you with expertise in planning, administration, execution and dissemination of research, and will also provide you with the background knowledge and skills required to become an active scientist.
- Located in the heart of London, giving unparalleled access to research facilities.
- You will be studying innovative modules covering modern theories of physics.
- Research-led course taught by staff who are recognised leaders in their field.
- For students whose interests lie in experimental physics, the opportunity to study the state of the experimental art nanoplasmonics, bio- imaging, near-field optics and nanophotonics, with access to the laboratories of the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN). You will be offered our flagship module in Advanced Photonics.
- For students whose interests lie in theoretical physics, the opportunity to take our flagship modules in Standard Model & Beyond and Advanced Condensed Matter.
- Excellent tutorial support, extensive course- specific interactive teaching and extensive project work.
