Physics PhD and MPhil by Research

At the University of Salford, Physics research projects in a wide range of theoretical and applied areas are possible, including:

Please see the Physics Research Pages for more information on our research areas, and topics currently investigated by postgraduates undertaking a MPhil by Research or a Salford Physics PhD.

Physics PhD Degrees

Applications for 3-year PhD Research programmes are invited from candidates who have, or expect to have, at least a 2:1 (Hons) degree in a relevant subject. EPSRC-funded PhD opportunities are usually available each year.

Physics MPhil Degrees

Applications for 2-year MPhil Research degrees are also accepted. The 2-year duration of the programme can be reduced to 1 year if the candidate has very relevant qualifications and experience.

Physics Research Degree Applications

Applications for GTA PhD studentships need to be made ealier than other studentships, for further information see the Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) PhD webpage.

Other applications to study for an MPhil or a PhD can be made by completing, and returning, the Postgraduate Research Application Form.

On the application form, candidates should make sure they include two referees who can comment on their suitability to study for a PhD or MPhil research degree, and they should indicate a preferred research area or the title of a specific project, where appropriate. They must also indicate on the form the type of financial support they have, or require.

If you have any further questions, regarding postgraduate study within Physics at the University of Salford, then please contact  Professor Ian Morrison.
