Advanced Physics MSc
Why did you decide to study at postgraduate level?
I did my undergraduate Physics degree at Loughborough University from 2013 to 2016. I later did a PGCE and went into teaching science.
After I left the teaching profession, I decided to do a master’s to update my knowledge and help with finding a job. I remembered enjoying the surface science modules that were offered and when I was looking for a taught MSc programme, the materials science content available attracted me to return.
Physics always was my first love within the realm of academia, but I only narrowed down towards physics of surfaces and the materials science aspect in the third year of my undergraduate degree.
What did you like best about the programme?
I liked how many optional modules there were for customising my degree, particularly from other areas such as materials and engineering. I had a good supervisor, and this made the project work a lot of fun. The staff were always approachable and willing to share their knowledge in and out of the classroom.
