Undergrad - Theoretical Physics

  1. May 23, 2010 #1
    I'm starting university in Ireland in October, and I want to pursue Theoretical Physics. Could someone please give me some feedback on the course please?

    Here's the link. It includes all the modules.

    It's not clear for what feedback one is looking.

    The syllabi are available.

    It all looks to be elements of a pretty standard physics program.

    Undergrad is pretty decent at Trinity. It's possible to start a PhD straight after your undergrads, but if you really want to persue a career Theoretical Physics you will want to do a Master's somewhere outside of Ireland.

    Do I need a masters if I can get a PhD straight away?
