Mathematics and Physics (with Year Abroad)

Master the logic, rigour and proof of mathematics alongside the universal principles of physics to prepare you for a wide range of careers. This course is for you if you enjoy and excel at pure mathematics and want to combine that knowledge with insights into the physical world. You’ll get to understand the rigour and generality of mathematics and its particular role in formalising empirical physical laws. In the first two years you will study core topics in mathematics and physics. You can change the balance of the subjects through your choice of optional units in the following years. You’ll benefit from studying in two departments and you may be able to transfer into either physics or mathematics if you decide to specialise. The MSci degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc students, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You’ll study masters-level units and a research project, preparing you for more technical roles, postgraduate study or a career in research. You’ll graduate with sound mathematical and experimental expertise. You’ll be able to grasp new concepts and apply them to a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar challenges.
