PhD in Theoretical Physics in the UK

Hello everyone,

I am a 4th year student in a UK undergraduate masters program (MPhys (Hons.)) in a russell group university. My grades are around 70% average as of last year (3rd year), and I am working really hard to improve my grades during the fourth year (i expect to graduate with an average between 70-75%).

I am very interested in theoretical physics, especially QFT and quantum gravity, and wanted to know what are good universities to consider in the UK for a PhD? What are my chances of getting a place in a top university, if any?

I am not from the UK or from an EU country, so I will be funding myself. I was told by one of my professors that being self funded might give me a slight advantage over others, is this true to any extent?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Regards,
karroooom
