The subjectspecific training in particle physics is provided through extraction from the already existing MSc course in “Particle Physics, Strings, and Cosmology” provided by academics from the Centre for Particle Theory, jointly between Mathematical Sciences and Physics. The lectures the students have to take in Michaelmas term are:

Introductory Field Theory (24 lectures)

Quantum Field Theory I (8 lectures)

Quantum Electrodynamics (16 lectures)

Standard Model (16 lectures)
Teaching outcomes are examined through homework exercises, including a takehome exam identical to the insitu exam that is taken by all regular MSc students and the CPT PhD students.
In Epipahny term the students must select lectures equivalent to at least 32 lecture hours from:

Quantum Chromodynamics (16 lectures)

Effective Field Theory and Flavour Physics (16 lectures)

Astrophysics (8 lectures)

Higgs Phenomenology (8 lectures)
As in Michaelmas term, teaching outcomes are examined through homework exercises, including a takehome exam identical to the insitu exam that is taken by all regular MSc students and the CPT PhD students.
Further details of all courses can be found in the annually updated handbook, under
