Theoretical Physics: 1 year long Pre-PhD-Programs

  1. May 16, 2014 #1
    Hi all!

    Recently, I came to know about Perimeter Institute's "PSI," which is an intensive, 1 year long, coursework based program in Theoretical Physics culminating in an M.S. degree. Similarly, there is the Pre-PhD-Program offered by ICTP, Italy.

    I have had 2 years of Physics training, and would like to attend such a program before I dive in for my PhD. My field of interest is QFT and String Theory. I was wondering whether, apart from these 2, there are any other reputed institutes and universities offering such full time and focused programs to international students?

    Have you considered the University of Cambridge's Mathematics Part III? The courses are wide-ranging and permit specialization in most areas of mathematics (pure or applied) and theoretical physics. A list of descriptions of the current courses is available from the above link.
