Our Physics Graduate School community comprises more than 200 students from a diverse global background, and with a very good gender balance. We have strong interactions with industry, and are well connected to the unique Bristol start-up and SME community, including joint training activities.
As a research student you will be a member of the Physics Graduate School, which organises social and scientific events to support you, coordinates skills training in Physics, organises induction, builds a community, and helps you navigate through the University procedures.
Our research degree programmes are offered across six diverse research themes. For informal discussions before making an application, prospective students are encouraged to contact either the academic lead in the research theme of interest for guidance, or the potential supervisor for project discussions.
Once you have settled on a research area and/or supervisor, you will need a CV, a personal statement introducing yourself and outlining your motivation for research, and details of your qualifications. The Physics programme is offered at the University of Bristol .
Graduates with research degrees are valued by employers and universities across the world. If you are considering a research career, a PhD in Physics is an essential qualification.
