BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Theoretical Physics
Acquire a deep insight into modern theories of nature using powerful mathematical techniques. This degree will provide you with the necessary mathematical language to be able to describe, analyse and predict natural phenomena. Final year modules include classical and quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and relativity, fluid dynamics and partial differential equations. A particular highlight of the degree is the choice of project modules to explore aspects of modern physics in depth.
We have strong links with CERN and the European Light Infrastructure. We’re very proud of being top in the Guardian Mathematics University League Table for 2019 for satisfaction with the course. We are also fourth for satisfaction with mathematics teaching. This is part of a record of students regularly saying that they enjoy our degrees and teaching.
The Plymouth Mathematics Scholarship
Up to £1,000
Students are automatically paid £500 for an A in Mathematics A level and/or a further sum of £500 for an A in Further Mathematics. This is awarded to home/EU applicants who put us as their firm choice before the 1st August 2019. The scholarship is paid during the first semester of the first year.
There are additional prizes and awards to reward high achievement in later years of the degree.
