MSc in Advanced High Energy Physics

University College London
London, England, UK
Courses in UKCourses in England1 year full-time

Course description
Particle physics is about to embark upon a new era with the start of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva. A kaleidoscope of new physics such as the Higgs, Supersymmetry or extra spatial dimensions could be around the corner.

Driven by this, UCL has initiated a Masters in Advanced High Energy Physics, covering the theory of the Standard Model, current experiments and their most significant results, future prospects, measurement techniques, high-level computing as well as an option in Quantum Field Theory. These advanced courses will be complemented with a project and dissertation within the High Energy Physics group. Depending on the project, a field trip of up to one month to a major High Energy Physics Laboratory such as CERN will be possible. Entry to this programme requires the equivalent of a UK MSci degree. Alternatively, with a BSc the candidate can join an integrated programme, aligned with the Bologna Declaration on Higher Education, of an eight-month post-graduate diploma followed by the one-year Masters.

For details of High Energy Physics at UCL, see the group page.
