Maths and Physics
UCAS Codes: GF13 (BSc), FG31 (MMathPhys)
Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study at university. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in geometry - a branch of pure mathematics.
The Warwick joint course is now among the best-established in the country with around 80 students starting each year. The course include a significant proportion of modules from both contributing departments designed primarily for joint degree students.
Warwick is strong in research in a number of branches of mathematics and physics, and is well-placed to offer accounts of those developments likely to be of most interest. These include non-linear systems (there are modules on the weather, modelling of biological systems, and complexity theory) and theoretical physics.

Being a Physics student at Warwick feels like you're part of the academic community.
I feel like I .. have a voice and will be listened to by my lecturers. .. It feels like I have something to contribute.
