PSI consists of four phases of coursework and a short research project. The course will advance:

Preparatory topics: mathematical tools, numerical methods and theoretical physics concepts relevant for the subsequent phases of courses Core Topics: foundational graduate-level subjects, including quantum theory, general relativity, quantum field theory, statistical physics, and condensed matter Review courses: modern topics from fields such as cosmology, particle physics, gravitational physics, string theory, quantum information and condensed matter. Explorations courses: cutting-edge research topics from various specialized fields. [link]

Front and Core courses (2009-now)[edit | edit source]

Does It worth getting some standard courses out of this list. Like QFT, GR, QM etc? Not sure. The sorting is pretty sufficient.
