About the Physics PhD

The PhD Degree is a research degree, meaning that the students are assessed on a thesis presenting original results obtained in the course of their research. The department has a reputation as a friendly and supportive environment. Situated at the Strand Campus, the department boasts a central London location.

It is possible to undertake research leading to the PhD degree in any of the areas of interest of the Physics Department. Each physics PhD student has a main supervisor who directs their work throughout the research degree - suggesting research problems, background reading, recommending lecture courses, research seminars, and conferences.

If you are interested in a PhD at King's, in the Department of Physics, you should identify research topics and academic staff in your area of interest. Further details of  projects, potential supervisors and research areas can be found on the Group Pages
