Course summary

Mathematics and Physics are natural subjects to combine at university. Comprehending high-level physics requires a strong mathematical foundation. Mathematical models are developed to explain our observations of the physical world.

Our BSc Mathematics and Physics programme gives you access to the combined expertise of the Departments of Physics and Mathematics. Our specialist teaching emphasises the mathematical structure of physical theory, providing a strong basis on which to build a comprehensive understanding of modern physics.

You'll work with dedicated staff, all of whom are engaged in current research and many are world leaders in their field. You will benefit from training in cutting-edge mathematical and theoretical physics techniques and use these to probe the nature of physical reality and push the boundaries of research.

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics (iop.org) and Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (ima.org.uk), guaranteeing the standard of our teaching and learning. Completing this degree will put you on track to becoming a Chartered Physicist or Chartered Mathematician.

Assessment and feedback

Most of your assessment will be by formal examination. You'll also be marked on regular problem exercises and laboratory work, coursework and formal report writing.

Your MPhys or MMath Project makes up a large proportion of mark for your final year. You'll be assessed on your lab work and dissertation and face an oral examination: all great preparation for continuing your studies to PhD level.
