Course summary

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 may be able to transfer into either physics or mathematics if you decide to specialise.

Placement

Going on placement gives you the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to a year working professionally. You’ll be employed full-time in a role to match your future career ambitions, broadening your experience and transferable skills. This could give you a competitive edge when applying for graduate jobs.

Prepare for your future

A physics degree will enable you to work within a wide range of careers such as scientific research and development, engineering, finance, IT, telecommunications or renewable energies. Many graduates also go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.

You can choose from a wide range of roles to match your interests, from working in marketing to a lab-based role at a research institute. We have links with some of the industry’s leading companies. Recent placement employers include BAE Systems, CERN, Dyson, Morgan Stanley, Rolls-Royce and Samsung.
