In the modern world, many new employment opportunities demand multi-skilled graduates. Those with mathematical and physics skills are among the most sought-after in fields including industrial research and development, computing, business, finance and teaching.
Youâll use our outstanding laboratory facilities. Weâve spent Â£250,000 on new equipment for our teaching laboratories including telescopes, CCD cameras, ultrasound scanners, magnetic resonance spectrometers, high speed cameras, thermal imaging equipment and a high resolution 3D printer.
The first two years of the course are used to develop basic skills in both mathematics and physics. Core subjects focus on mathematical methods, numerical methods, mechanics, and matter. In your final year, your choice of project allows you to place greater emphasis on either the physics or mathematics side of the course dependent on your interests.
Additionally, in your third year youâll have the opportunity to undertake a one-year work placement in industry, including overseas options. This will give you the chance to gain vital experience and put your knowledge into practice.
Application deadline details:
Nottingham is an absolutely amazing town, with the best student club ever, the Ocean. You’ll never hear the Baywatch theme the same way again. There’s a really nice student vibe, a ‘friendly’ rivalry between Nottingham U, Batman’s house, and three pubs claiming to be the oldest pub in Britain (that serve cheap pints to boot). The library is also amazing, with loads of study space, and the SU threw loads of great events, and I joined a few fantastic societies that really helped me experience all the uni had to offer.
