About

The Mathematical and Theoretical Physics course offered at the  University of Oxford  provides a high-level, internationally competitive training in mathematical and theoretical physics, right up to the level of modern research.

Overview

The Mathematical and Theoretical Physics course offered at the  University of Oxford  concentrates on the main areas of modern mathematical and theoretical physics: elementary-particle theory, including string theory, condensed matter theory (both quantum and soft matter), theoretical astrophysics, plasma physics and the physics of continuous media (including fluid dynamics and related areas usually associated with courses in applied mathematics in the UK system) and mathematical structures underlying physical theory. 

If you are a physics student with a strong interest in theoretical physics or a mathematics student keen to apply high-level mathematics to physical systems and their underpinning mathematics, both pure and applied, this is a course for you.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Mathematical Institute and Department of Physics and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Mathematical Institute and Department of Physics.

Graduate destinations

Research in mathematical and theoretical physics or industry.
