About this course

Physics and mathematics are inextricably linked. It is not really possible to understand the basic concepts of physics such as elementary particle theory without a strong grounding in both pure and applied mathematics. This BSc combines the study of mathematics and physics on an equal basis, each reinforcing the other.

  • Gain transferable skills such as numeracy, problem-solving and logical thinking, which can lead to a large variety of interesting, diverse and well-paid careers.
  • Internationally renowned UCL Mathematics is home to world-leading researchers in a wide range of fields, especially geometry, spectral theory, number theory, fluid dynamics and mathematical modelling.
  • Three of the six British winners of the Fields medal (the mathematician's equivalent of the Nobel Prize) have associations with the department.
  • UCL Physics & Astronomy was rated 4th in the last UK Government Research Excellence Framework (REF)
