About Theoretical Physics (MPhys, BSc), BSc (Hons), MPhys (Hons) - at University of Leeds

Theoretical physics uses mathematical methods to delve into the way the world around us works. It is because of the groundbreaking research and discoveries theoretical physicists have made over centuries that we now have the technological advances needed to be able to solve some of the most complex problems on our planet.

From developing cancer treatments and artificial intelligence to answering the fundamental questions of the universe, physics and physicists have had a monumental impact across a variety of different industries - which is why it is still such a sought after and relevant discipline today.

Studying theoretical physics at Leeds will help you develop a solid grounding in how mathematical methods are applied to physics topics, whilst getting involved in real ongoing research alongside expert academics and researchers at the forefront of the industry.

You'll also have access to world-leading research and specialist facilities right here on campus. As a physics student, you'll be taught in our brand-new, purpose-built engineering and physical sciences hub - the Sir William Henry Bragg Building. It's home to first-class laboratories and specialised teaching spaces, along with the Bragg Centre where scientists and engineers work collaboratively to develop solutions for economical, societal and technical challenges in the UK.

Here at Leeds, we understand the importance this industry has in everyday life, which is why our courses are professionally accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP), meaning the topics you'll study reflect the latest developments in physics. Once you graduate, you'll also qualify as a recognised chartered physicist (CPhys). This will equip you with the key knowledge, skills and experience you need to begin your career in this highly valued profession.
