Course summary

**Why choose this course**If you have a passion for 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 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 programme gives you the best of both worlds.Two unique aspects of these courses are:1. Our placement programme:As part of our BSc, you can take a paid placement in a research laboratory or company, gaining valuable industry-relevant experience. On our MPhys or MMath, you can take a research placement that can be in one of our world-leading research groups or at one of our international partner institutions.2. Our focus on undergraduate research and innovation:Undergraduates have the opportunity to apply for paid summer research placements with our research groups and those of our South East Physics Network partners. We also offer in-house grants that students can apply for to fund a research placement, attend a conference or develop a new business idea.**What you will study**These 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.Your final research project will be carried out under the supervision of an academic who’s a leading researcher in the field. The outcomes of the project could even 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 or mathematics.
