Professor Jiannis Pachos
Being able to predict the motion of galaxies or the behaviour of subatomic particles based on few principles — and lots of hard work—is in the core of theoretical physics.I strongly believe that physics, even at challenging levels, should be accessible. This is reflected in the way the Theoretical Physics Program is composed and taught at the University of Leeds.
Melvin Hoare
The course builds hand-in-hand with the physics, maths and computing that you learn alongside, but allows you to apply these ideas to the amazing objects out there such as new planets, exploding stars and super-massive black holes.
