About Advanced Science (Physical Science Pathway - Nanoscale and Condensed Matter Physics) at University of Liverpool

The Faculty of Science has developed bespoke pathways to Masters awards, affording applicants the opportunity to develop their own postgraduate degree programmes. Our MRes programmes have a greater research element than corresponding MSc programmes, so they’re ideal if you want to follow a research career.

There’s plenty of flexibility so you’ll be able to tailor your programme to reflect your particular areas of interest, conducting a major research project and choosing from a series of taught modules, including research training.

The title of your degree award will reflect your pathway of choice, which in turn reflects the research interest of the host departments. Having completed your MRes you’ll be able to progress seamlessly to a PhD degree.
