This course is designed for students who wish to study both mathematics and physics in depth. Students attend lectures, tutorials, examples classes and laboratory sessions covering a broad range of topics in mathematics and physics. Teaching is greatly strengthened by the wide variety of research interests pursued by the staff and there are large and lively groups active in both applied mathematics and theoretical physics. Topics of study from applied mathematics may include: hydrodynamics, waves, elasticity and modelling of industrial processes. The research interests of the theoretical physics group cover, amongst others, high energy particle physics, nuclear physics and quark matter and field theory in curved space-time.
It is possible to transfer to the 4-year MMath/Phys course at the beginning of your third year.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £20,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
