I did one but my degree was practically applied maths, except 6 pure courses. So if you have a natural interest and you have been doing courses such as fluids, electromagnetism, analytical dynamics, waves, loads of methods courses etc you should be fine

Thanks for the reply.

My optional modules in my 2nd and 3rd year along with the core modules will be:

Dynamical systems
Applied mathematics
Numerical mathematics
Fluid dynamics
Quantum mechanics
Mathematical models and modeling
Groups and symmetry
Discrete mathematics

I'm doing the M.Sc. in Fusion Energy at York which is in the physics department. I did my undergrad in Maths in the states.

this list has a fair amount of physically applied maths.
You should be o.k. if you are reasonably intelligent and hardworking.
