a maths degree

    • Thread Starter

    Is maths at warwick better than maths at durham/imperial? (where i define "better" to be flexibility in the course as well as the number of interesting modules)
    I've applied to all of them and would like to choose the most "fun" course for maths if i dont get an offer from cambridge. I've heard people saying warwick is second only to cambridge and some others saying oxford first, then cambridge, imperial, warwick etc.
    Also, do you know if any of the universities mentioned allow you to take some physics options as i would like to be able to learn some cosmology or some more physicsy modules as well.
    Out of interest, what are the best maths courses that are normally in clearing?
    Lastly, how useful is FP3 in doing step 3?

    When I was looking at Maths degrees I thought the Warwick degree looked a lot better than Durham (didn't look into imperial). Since I don't know what modules you would find interesting you'd have to do some research at look at the various module lists which are available on their websites and decide that for yourself.
