UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

Mathematics and physics are closely interlinked subjects, with each providing many fascinating insights into the other. Students on this programme receive a thorough mathematical training and may also take courses in physics and astronomy elsewhere in UCL and the University of London. This MSci offers an additional year of study on top of the Mathematics with Mathematical Physics BSc, during which students have the opportunity to specialise further by taking more advanced courses, and undertaking a major project.

Course Modules

In the 1st 1 and 1/2 years, the degree programme is the same as those for the single'subject degrees in mathematics; quantum mechanics can be taken in place of algebra 3. In the 2nd half of the 2nd year and 3rd and 4th years, programme follows the applied mathematics options, supplemented by physics courses given in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
