Schools Is University of Cambridge good?

  1. Aug 3, 2012 #1

    For my undergraduate degree, I intend to study at the University of British Columbia. For my Masters and PHD I am hoping to study at Cambridge.

    How good is the Physics program at Cambridge? I am interested in Particle Astrophysics. I noticed that on their website they don't (at least from what I have observed) include a section on graduate courses, unlike MIT for example. What is the system at Cambridge like?

    Try the websites of specific departments/centres. Say, DAMTP.

    Also: consider focusing on doing well throughout your undergraduate degree and then thinking about the specifics grad school.

    I agree with mepris. Focus on your undergrad first before anything. Its good to plan ahead, i planned my next 5 years, but you gotta focus and do really well in your undergrad studies. Also, Have you looked into cita(canadian institute of theoretical astrophysics). I am planning on undergrad at sfu and doing some undergrad research at cita. i only know of programs in canada sorry haha
