Mathematics and Physics University of Bath

Undergraduate

This course is for you if you enjoy and excel at pure mathematics and want to combine that knowledge with insights into the physical world. You’ll get to understand the rigour and generality of mathematics and its particular role in formalising empirical physical laws.

In the first two years you will study core topics in mathematics and physics. You can change the balance of the subjects through your choice of optional units in the following years. You’ll benefit from studying in two departments and you may be able to transfer into either physics or mathematics if you decide to specialise.

You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills of an independent scientist, with sound mathematical and experimental expertise, and the ability to solve complex problems on your own.
