Course Summary

Exploring nature at the tiniest scale, the Particle Physics group seeks to add to our understanding of the make-up of our universe. By joining our research group, you will be following in the footsteps of our celebrated emeritus professor, Peter Higgs, whose groundbreaking Higgs mechanism has excited the world of physics for decades and has been the focus of operations at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. You will also have the opportunity to confer and work with some of the greatest minds in physics today, through our links with leading conferences and international facilities. Our research group works in two areas: Theory and Experiment.

In addition to research, our students attend a wide range of lectures and participate in international conferences. The Particle Physics group offers prospective PhD students exciting opportunities to study at the very frontier of understanding. Fully funded studentships are available for a wide range of theoretical and experimental projects, plus opportunities to travel to CERN for long and short visits.
