Newsflash – New MSc Course at Maynooth!

I know it’s the Easter holiday weekend but I couldn’t resist sharing the exciting news that we have just received approval for a brand new Masters course at Maynooth University in Theoretical Physics & Mathematics. The new postgraduate course will be run jointly between the Departments of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics & Statistics, with each contributing about half the material. The duration is one calendar year (full-time) or two years (part-time) and consists of 90 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). This will be split into 60 credits of taught material (split roughly 50-50 between Theoretical Physics and Mathematics) and a research project of 30 credits, supervised by a member of staff in a relevant area from either Department.

This new course is a kind of follow-up to the existing undergraduate BSc Theoretical Physics & Mathematics at Maynooth, also run jointly . We think the postgraduate course will appeal to many of the students on that programme who wish to continue their education to postgraduate level, though applications are very welcome from suitably qualified candidates elsewhere.

Although the idea of this course has been on the cards for quite a while, the pandemic and other issues delayed it until now. This has so recently been agreed that it doesn’t yet exist on the University admissions webpages. This blog post is therefore nothing more than a sneak preview. There isn’t much time between now and September, when the course runs for the first time, which is why I decided to put this advanced notice on here! I will give fuller details on how to apply when they are available. You will also find further information on the Department’s Twitter feed, so if you’re interested I suggest you give them a follow.
