Welcome to MSc by Research Computational Physics
How You Study
Research Areas and Topics
Staff in the School of Mathematics and Physics conduct leading research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nanoscience at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The School collaborates with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and the USA.
Our research focuses on four key areas: Algebra, Astrophysics, Computational Physics, and Experimental Nanophysics.
The School is home to the Centre for Computational Physics, with research encompassing computational and theoretical physics as well as applied mathematics of nano-structured soft matter, solid/soft matter interface, molecular biophysics, and biologically inspired systems.

The School of Mathematics and Physics forms part of the new Isaac Newton Building, which comprises additional spaces such as workshops and computer laboratories. The School also hosts its own supercomputer.
How you are assessed
To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May. In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.
International Postgraduate Taught Application Deadline
Please note that international applications for taught postgraduate programmes starting in September 2022 have now closed.
Entry Requirements 2022-23
This research programme enables students to expand their knowledge and expertise in an area of specific interest.
