About this course

This MPhys Particle Physics degree offers a unique opportunity to combine physics with a year studying abroad. You'll spend your fourth year with the international research team at CERN in Geneva and work on a project at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

We offer this flagship course to the best students on our MPhys Physics and MPhys Physics with Mathematics degrees.

Experiments at the LHC led to the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of the Higgs boson.

Experience at CERN will be recognised by research institutions worldwide, opening up a wide range of career and PhD possibilities.

While at CERN, you’ll work on one of the following experiments:

  • LHCb, which is investigating differences between matter and antimatter

  • ATLAS or CMS, both of which are broad research programmes looking for new particles

We’re the only UK university to offer a physics degree with an integrated 1-year placement at CERN.
