Which are the top 10 univs in the U.K. offering MSc Physics?

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.
