The UCD Theoretical Physics degree emphasizes the mathematical description of physical phenomena, providing a uniﬁed picture of the fundamental laws of nature. It’s ideally suited to students who enjoy studying Mathematics and Physics for their Leaving Certiﬁcate. Insights from Theoretical Physics are driving our understanding of nature at all scales, from the origin of large-scale structures in the universe to the Planck scale, where our current understanding of space and time breaks down. The degree comprehensively covers Theoretical Physics, while developing your knowledge and expertise in problem-solving, using analytical and computational techniques, which have wide application in, for example, biophysics, econophysics, quantum physics, relativity, and nanoscience.
"Ireland bases its tuition rates on residence (3 of the last 5 years living in the EU) despite whether you're an EU citizen or not. In other words, only those who have resided in an EU country 3 of the last 5 years are eligible for the discounted rates."
