The flexibility of the programme allows you to choose courses as diverse or specific as you like or as theoretical or experimental as desired.

Studying is a team effort, you work with students on problem sets and give each other the moral support required.

Studying at the University of Edinburgh opened a wealth of opportunities: it took me to conferences in Glasgow, London, Reykjavik, and Cape Town, and since graduating, I've joined the University full-time to work with student start-up companies.

I was lucky enough to receive two summer scholarships to undertake physics projects, and what I liked the most was being encouraged to contribute to key research being carried out in the School.
