School of Physical Sciences



The School of Physical Sciences offers both taught and research postgraduate opportunities. The taught programmes lead to Master of Science degrees.

The EuroMasters in Physics is a taught programme, based on what has become the European standard, combining one 9-month taught year with a second 9-month research year. The taught year consists of a range of physics, astrophysics and space science modules with a focus on learning research methods. In the second year, a closely guided research programme is planned and performed. The student learns to work within a world-leading research environment - an experience which is of a considerable advantage to most graduate career objectives.

The MSc in Forensic Science is a full year taught programme which covers a superb range of advanced modules. It is suitable for students with a good first degree in a similar subject such as chemistry or bioscience. It provides training and a set of skills which sets apart the holder as highly competent in experimental, analytical and theoretical knowledge

The Graduate School

The Graduate School provides a focus for all aspects of research and postgraduate training and is committed to ensuring the highest quality experience for students and staff alike. The aim is to provide high quality research training in a stimulating environment, and to allow our higher degree students to collaborate and to compete successfully with their peers within both industrial and academic settings. The skills, abilities and enthusiasm of our students are considered a vital element in our research activity.

The work carried out at Kent is of the highest academic standard and is often related to medical, commercial and industrial problems. The research groups are focused in the areas of Functional Materials, Applied Optics, Forensic Imaging, and Astrophysics and Planetary Science.
