BSc (Hons), Sandwich With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Mathematics and Physics.
Physics and Mathematics at Keele are consistently rated highly in the National Student Survey. The course features high levels of contact time with academic staff engaged in world-leading research. We recognise the need for making the transition from A Level to University Mathematics as smooth as possible and have a carefully designed first year curriculum and a multi-layered student support structure.
The interconnected disciplines of Mathematics and Physics both involve high levels of abstraction and conceptual sophistication yet can contribute to many of the worldâs most pressing needs. Several of the mathematics staff are engaged in research that is closely related to areas of theoretical physics such as fluid mechanics and waves. In the Mathematics element of the course you will explore the beauty and practicality of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. You will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments, construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems.
Physics has applications in many areas of science and technology. You will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of Physics, including quantum mechanics, relativity and electromagnetism, and apply this knowledge to solve problems, plan investigations and report your work.
A Mathematics and Physics degree is a springboard for many careers. You will have gained a broad base of scientific and mathematical knowledge together with much valued versatility in problem solving and quantitative reasoning. This course provides the solid background needed for scientific research, engineering, industry, management, software development, health and teaching. In recent years both mathematicians and physicists have been recruited in the financial sector. Employment as a science writer, chartered accountant or IT consultant are other possible routes. Many of our graduates go on to further study, either at Masterâs or PhD level.
Application deadline details:
With the largest campus in the UK, Keele University easily manages to fit everything that a student may need into a short walk away. But if do you need to go into the local towns, buses are available every 20 minutes that go all around the local areas. Because there are no large cities on your doorstep, the SU works tirelessly to put on amazing nights, including the 'Flirt' nights which are always popular. The uni is high-ranking in all the different league tables, and is one that values both education and research meaning that students are valued by well-informed professors.
