A substantial research-orientated project is a significant component of the final year of the MPhys/MSci schemes. Project topics are usually related to your scheme and to our departmental research strengths. MPhys/MSci degrees are ideal if you are planning a career as a professional physicist and are the recommended route into research degrees. Our Handbook 2016/17 and gives highly detailed information for the current year, but the information may change for future years.
A good result from a BSc course, however, will allow you to continue your studies at MSc or research at PhD level or to enter a vocational MSc or teacher training programme.
To give you as much flexibility as possible, our MPhys and BSc courses have a common first year. However, given the extra commitment required for the four-year courses, we will normally make you a higher grade offer.
