Course summary

**Why choose this course**If you have a passion for deeply understanding the Universe and a love of mathematics, our Mathematics and Physics courses could be perfect for you.Taught jointly by the two departments, our BSc, MMath and MPhys courses will give you a deeper understanding of mathematics and explore how it’s applied to solve physics problems. Whether you think of it as applied mathematics or theoretical physics, this joint course gives you the best of both worlds.They will provide a solid foundation for understanding the key theories of modern physics, such as special and general relativity, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory.A unique aspect of all three courses is our placement programme. You can take up a paid year-long placement in an industry research laboratory or company, gaining valuable industry-relevant experience as part of your degree.**What you will study**Surrey’s mathematics and physics courses explore core topics across both subjects including calculus, quantum physics, linear algebra and particle physics.You’ll also get to choose from a range of fascinating optional modules – such as fluid dynamics, nuclear astrophysics, Galois theory and general relativity – and take an extended project, enabling you to tailor the course to suit your own interests.The final research project will be carried out under the supervision of an academic who is a leading researcher in the field. The outcomes of the project may lead to a publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MMath (Master of Mathematics) or MPhys (Master of Physics), which are direct routes to a masters qualification.If you study toward one of the integrated masters, you’ll spend part of your last year doing a research project in either physics (MPhys) or mathematics (MMath).
