Hi everyone,

I am trying to decide between two possible university courses which have sparked my interest.

The courses are Theoretical Physics at Durham University and Theoretical Physics with Mathematics at Lancaster University.

Both courses look like they may be a good fit for me, as they contain a reasonable balance of physics and mathematics, both which I enjoy.

I was wondering if the amount and level of mathematics taught in the Durham course would be comparable to the Lancaster course, as mathematics is something which I enjoy learning.

Also, would a degree in theoretical physics from Durham be regarded as containing enough mathematics to go into a maths career in the future, as maths has always been a topic I am interested in and I would not want to be limited to only physics careers if employers in this area did not regard it as similar training.

These are links to the pages containing the course structure for both, if that would be useful:

Thanks in advance for any replies
