Mathematics and Physics

The Mathematics and Physics degree programmes combine the strong teaching traditions and research expertise of the Department of Physics with those of the Department of Mathematics.

Students on these degree programmes receive approximately half their teaching from each department, proceeding to high-level courses in the later years, with options available in both subjects and a research project which can be taken in either department.

The degree programme is ideally suited for those seeking a broad training in mathematical physics, possibly leading to a research career in that area, who prefer an even greater concentration on fundamental mathematics than we offer in our Theoretical Physics programme.

Available Undergraduate Mathematics and Physics courses include: 

Our degree programmes are offered as a four year Integrated Masters course (MPhys) or three year Bachelors course (BSc) and can be studied with an optional Year Abroad.

For further inforamtion on choosing your course see our Studying Physics guide.
