This course is for you if you enjoy and excel at pure mathematics and want to combine that knowledge with insights into the physical world. You'll get to understand the rigour and generality of mathematics and its particular role in formalising empirical physical laws.
In the first two years you will study core topics in mathematics and physics. You can change the balance of the subjects through your choice of optional units in the following years. You'll benefit from studying in two departments and you may be able to transfer into either physics or mathematics if you decide to specialise.
The MSci degree gives you the opportunity to enhance and deepen your knowledge compared to BSc students, particularly in topics at the forefront of research. You'll study masters-level units and a research project, preparing you for more technical roles, postgraduate study or a career in research.
You'll graduate with sound mathematical and experimental expertise. You'll be able to grasp new concepts and apply them to a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar challenges.
Application deadline details:
Bath University - where, thanks to the name, some societies are called BRA, BUMS and BUST and being part of them is just as much of a laugh. It takes at most a 15 minute walk from one end of the campus to another, you'll pass the many things that the campus has to offer. The lake, the library, the coffee shop, the canteen, people singing and dancing, the post office, the shop, the bar.. you name it. The university came top for satisfaction in 2013 and the city is one of the safest places to be. If the uni doesn't have something the city will, and both are absolutely beautiful.
Everyone is so friendly. If you feel lonely, lost, or homesick or have any issues there are people here who are willing to help, and many students are willing to help you. It isn't as overwhelming as it seems, you can do anything you dreamed of doing. so far, it's been great, i've met loads of new people every day.
