We offer a one-year Master's by Research (MSc) course, plus opportunities for extended research leading to a PhD (see courses listed below). All Physics and Astronomy courses are based on our Canterbury campus.

Those studying for a research Master's can choose from an exciting range of research projects currently offered by the School of Physics and Astronomy, some of which are eligible for funding.
