In this subject, students undertake a program of original research in one of the many research fields in which the School of Physics is active and internationally recognised: astrophysics, condensed matter physics, optics, and particle physics. The research may be experimental and/or theoretical in nature. It will be conducted under the supervision of a member of the Schools academic staff. The results will be reported in the form of a thesis.
Students would normally enrol in a combination of Physics Research Project subjects as indicated below over two semesters of full-time study or over four semesters of part-time study, to ensure they have completed a total of 50 points by the end of their course.
