Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates

If you are a prospective student please see our Covid-19 webpages, which we are updating regularly, for detailed advice and support.

The MSc programmes in Theoretical Physics and Mathematical Physics introduce advanced ideas in theoretical physics and apply them to solving real-world problems.

Our alumni talk about some of the things they love about the MSc programmes, the University, the city of Edinburgh and how the experience has been for them.

The MSc programmes are closely linked to the Higgs Centre.
