Course Summary

The Jeremiah Horrocks Institute for Mathematics, Physics, and Astronomy conducts cutting-edge research in many fields. We offer postgraduate degrees (MSc and PhD) by research in a variety of topics (see the current projects available). We typically have a few PhD studentships available each year that cover tuition and provide stipends for successful candidates. The deadline for consideration for these is around the end of January but we welcome applications from suitable candidates all year around. Projects will be allocated depending on funding levels available and the preferences of those students ranked highest on the list of applicants. If you would like more details then please contact our staff directly. We are targeting enthusiastic and self-motivated students interested in joining one of the UK’s most rapidly growing research Institutes.
