    Hi. I posted on a thread earlier today, but I decided to repost this thread to a new thread under a more relevant title so it could gain more traction. Here it is:

    Hi, I have a question regarding the pure mathematics course at Imperial (and other places such as St.Andrews) vs the 'plain' mathematics course at Warwick.

    My interest lies with pure mathematics (I'm not a big fan of some of the applied stuff, especially physics/mechanics modules, although I don't mind stats and prob; in addition, number theory and group theory are the two branches of mathematics that interest me the most: I don't think you can get much purer than that!), so the fact that Imperial has a pure mathematics course on top of a standard mathematics course indicates that Imperial is the way to go for me (Warwick doesn't offer a separate 'Pure Mathematics' course).

    Would you agree? It seems that Warwick offers a lot of flexibility (just looked at the module choices), allowing me to pursue solely pure mathematics in the last two years, but it seems to be quite broadchurch early on (i.e. as 'vector analysis' and 'geometry and motion' are both core modules, meaning I have to do physics-y modules...). Thoughts?

    You really need to do some research around what modules are available and what choices you have. Think about what your interests are and what you want to study. No one on here can make that decision for you.
