Physics and Astronomy

UCL Physics & Astronomy is one of the top departments in the UK for graduate study (RAE 2008). Our large number of international collaborations provide opportunities to work with an international team, including the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, the low-frequency array (LOFAR) in northern Europe, and at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble. For graduate students whose interests are more theoretical, there is access to national supercomputer facilities. In some cases, there are opportunities for students to broaden their experience by spending part of their time overseas. The wide variety of training afforded leads to a high degree of employability in many different areas.
