Physics: Particle Physics MSc Queen Mary University of London

Why study Physics: Particle Physics MSc at Queen Mary University of London?Physics is essential to our understanding of how the universe works: from the behaviour of fundamental particles to the movement of the stars and planets. Theory and experiment are vital to developing answers to questions about the universe and the fundamental nature of matter, energy, space and time.This new programme is a one year masters level qualification in Physics in one of three research streams: Theoretical Physics, Particle Physics or Condensed Matter Physics. This programme will deepen your understanding of particle physics, covering more advanced concepts than the BSc and MSci programmes in physics.

Examine the fundamental properties of the universe with our Particle Physics MSc and gain a profound understanding of the world around us. You’ll be working at the frontier of a subject that has seen some of the 21st century’s greatest scientific discoveries.

This Physics: Particle Physics MSc at Queen Mary University of London will give you a comprehensive understanding of the field, while also keeping you up-to-date with the very latest developments in research. 

Over the duration of the course, you’ll gain a deep knowledge of the Standard Model of particle physics and cover topics ranging from how to draw a Feynman diagram, data analysis in particle physics, computer programming in modern science and how to apply quantum mechanical principles to the sub-atomic and sub-nuclear physics.

You’ll complete a specialist independent piece of research, your MSc research project, under the supervision of an academic with research interests in a similar area to your own. You’ll develop a sophisticated understanding of research methodology, and how to manage your own research, making use of journal articles and other primary sources.


This MSc is great preparation for a PhD in particle physics. You’ll be given comprehensive training in research methods, substantial independent project work and access to the expertise and culture of the department. 

The wide range of transferable skills you will gain is, however, equally useful in boosting your future prospects or in another career, where physics graduates excel.
