Hello.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am intending to apply to some physics masters courses after my Natural Sciences BSc at UEA. I wonder if anyone could give me any advice as to the difficulty of the courses and my suitability for them? I have asked the admissions departments, but as one would expect, they are busy and thus have given very short replies.

My Natural Sciences degree includes a few maths courses (Astrophysics, Mechanics & Modelling, Calculus, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Dynamical Systems) along with more general maths courses that include vector calculus, fourier series, fluid mechanics, matrices, numerical methods, solid mechanics & differential equations. In addition there has been a lot of chemical physics, including some optics, more Quantum mechanics, and some QED soon.

I am also furiously studying extra physics outside of my degree.

The degrees I am interested in are QFFF at ICL, EPT at Durham, Theoretical Physics at KCL, Theoretical Physics at Surrey.

Does my background sound enough to handle these courses? I am averaging around 85% so far in my BSc. Can anyone suggest other Theoretical phys masters, or what material I should be studying on top of my degree?

Thanks in advance

Scott Smith
