Institute for the Physics of Living Systems


MSc Physics

The MSc in Biological Physics has been merged with the MSc in Physics. The programme aims to provide students with a sound knowledge of the underlying principles which form a thorough basis for careers in these and related fields, enable students to develop insights into the techniques used in current projects and allow an in-depth experience of a particular specialised research area.

The programme will immerse students in an active research environment. From the onset, students will be interacting with experienced researchers in the laboratory and familiarising themselves with state of the art research techniques. A series of transferable skills classes and seminars will empower students and will prepare them for the future so they have the skills required to succeed whatever direction they choose to take.
