Best universities for physics Anonymous 06/27/14(Fri)22:46 UTC+1 No.6615090 Report

Which 5 should I pick?
- Oxford (physics)
- Lancaster (theoretical physics with mathematics)
- St Andrews (theoretical physics and mathematics)
- Warwick (physics and mathematics)
- Durham (physics and mathematics)
- York (maths and physics)
- KCL (physics with theoretical physics)
- Manchester (maths and physics)

While there are certainly some universities that have more prestigious programs than others, the list of "best" schools is going to be different for every student.

Picking a school comes down to finding the program that fits you best and that's something that requires a case by case approach rather than a universal ranked list

I guess I'm more interested in the theoretical/mathematical side of physics than the practical side, in case you couldn't tell. So where is best for that kind of thing?

Completely subjective and ultimately down to what you want to do or look to do and what may be a fit for you.

Completely pointless question for grad school.

So what is "engineering physics"? You learn how to create experimental equipment?

>way better universities
But only 2 US universities beat Oxford in international rankings, and the chances of getting into MIT or Harvard are a lot slimmer than Oxbridge.

Depends from the ranking of the particular university.

OP: Just look up programs & professor, then do a chart.

Where's Cambridge OP? I'm doing maths at Cambridge in October (assuming STEP works out). Maths w/ Physics would suit you.
