Postgrad Open Day: Friday 23 November 2012
Prospective postgraduate students are warmly invited to visit the School of Physics & Astronomy during the next Open Day on Friday 23rd November.
PhD studies in Physics and Astronomy
If you have, or are likely to graduate with, a 2.1 or first-class degree in Physics or Astronomy, why not consider taking doctoral studies in this School?
The Postgraduate Open Day offers a unique opportunity to hear about the PhD programmes and projects that we offer, and for students to discuss prospective studies with academic staff. Current students will be there to tell you what it is like, and there will be tours of the building with staff on hand to explain experimental work. Last but least, information on funding will be available, for there are scholarships to cover tuition fees and living expenses. Informal one-to-one interviews may also be possible, depending on the availability of academic staff.

The MSc in High Performance Computing
The MSc in High Performance Computing (HPC) provides an excellent grounding in HPC technologies and their practical application. It will appeal if you have a keen interest in programming and would like to learn about HPC and parallel programming.
The MSc provides a doorway to a wide range of careers, including computational science research and commercial software development. Current students are welcome to join the Postgraduate Open Day to meet staff and current students and learn about what the MSc and the University have to offer.
