    The aim of the programme is to deepen your understanding of a chosen branch of contemporary physics or astrophysics, covering advanced concepts and techniques, leaving you well prepared for further doctoral level study and research. The programme will also enable you to develop skills transferable to a wide range of other careers.

    The MSc in Physics is designed to provide a postgraduate award, with 120 ECTS credits, which will allow you to enter doctoral level programmes in other European countries.

    You will cover advanced concepts and techniques in either astrophysics or an area of physics. The combination of advanced taught programmes and an extended research training project will allow you to gain a deep understanding of your chosen area of physics or astrophysics. The MSc in Physics is an initiative of the South East Physics Network (SEPnet). The consortium institutions each offer programmes, which are mutually compatible. This allows you to have the possibility of transferring to a partner institution for the second year.

    Programme outline
    Year 1: Either eight modules from the Intercollegiate MSci fourth year or eight taught modules of the MSc Astrophysics.

    Year 2: Advanced Research methods (30 credits) and an an extended research-training project, including appropriate taught material and training, and the production of a dissertation.

    Assessment
    Assessment will be by examination, some modules also have a coursework component. The research-training project is assessed by written dissertation. Lab work may be required for some modules and/or projects.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Program requirements

    Entry to the Programme requires a minimum of an upper second honours degree at Bachelors level in physics, or its equivalent. Direct entry to the second year of the programme requires students to have achieved the equivalent of a postgraduate diploma in physics at a SEPnet partner.Entry to either year is subject to availability of appropriate courses and/or projects and the suitability of the applicant for the intended programme.English language requirementsAll students must meet Queen Mary's English language requirements. For students from outside the United Kingdom, you must give evidence of your English language ability by producing an English language test score. The score depends on the degree programme you are applying for. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL iBT® test: 92 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
