Theoretical Physics MPhys (Hons)

Theoretical Physics addresses the meaning of everything.

From quantum information and a grand unified theory, to dark matter and high energy particle physics, this subject can take you anywhere.

Over the course of this four-year degree you will be inspired to ask and answer big questions.

How did the universe begin? Is it possible to recreate in a laboratory the conditions that existed seconds after the big bang? What are space and time made of?

Intended primarily for those aiming to become professional physicists, our MPhys is broadly comparable with other European physics degrees.

You will study from a selection of modules that could include astronomy and cosmology, nuclear physics, the quantum world and climate physics.

We will teach you how fundamental physics is applied across different disciplines and how it connects to new advances in engineering, medicine and mathematics.

Studying physics at Swansea University gives you access to genuinely world-leading teaching and cutting edge facilities.

This MPhys will distinguish you as a committed, ambitious and talented physicist.

If you don't have the necessary entry requirements to enter on to the first year of a degree, you may be offered a place on a degree course with an integrated foundation year.
