If you love the challenge of thinking through a maths question and the satisfaction of having solved a difficult problem, but also appreciate the applications of mathematics in areas of physics and want access to the exciting and specialised subjects offered by the School of Physics, then this four-year, joint honours course can offer you both.

Your mathematics study will focus on the areas of applied mathematics that are most linked to physics, such as the mathematical modelling of physical problems, quantum mechanics and random matrix theory. You will also cover a range of topics in physics, such as special relativity, electromagnetism and superconductors.

In the first and second years of this course the units are fixed so as to provide a balanced exploration of mathematics and physics and the connection between them.

In your third and fourth years you will have freedom to select from a wide variety of relevant units to focus your studies on what interests you most. The four-year degree allows you to access specialised units reflecting the exciting research base at Bristol.

In your fourth year you will complete a physics project in one of our cutting-edge research areas.

This course is accreditated by the following organisations

The Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of fully meeting the educational requirement for Chartered Physicist.
