    I'm sure everyone would come up with a different list of 10. You might want to start with the Russell group, although that's more than 10:


    Here's my top 10, just to start an argument :-)

    * University of Birmingham
    * University of Bristol
    * University of Cambridge
    * University of Edinburgh
    * University of Glasgow
    * Imperial College London
    * University of Manchester
    * University of Oxford
    * University of Southampton
    * University College London

    Ooo :)

    From my own research:

    * University of Cambridge (Part III I believe it is in the tripos)
    * University of Oxford
    * Imperial College London
    * University of Leeds
    * St Andrews University
    * University of Durham
    * University College London
    * University of Manchester
    * Lancaster University
    * University of Edinburgh

    Plenty of other goods ones, though, such as Warwick, Sheffield, Heriot-Watt, Strathclyde.

    Depends what type of Physics you're interested in, but to my knowledge Part III and the Imperial MSc are the best for theoretical/Mathematical physics, with Durham also having a good Stringy/HEP Theory Masters.

    Whats the Oxford Masters like? I've never heard of it

    Condensed matter physics.

    Yeah, i've heard Durham is good for HEP, I believe they've just built a pretty good particle accelerator in an old coal mine.
