Mathematical physics celebrates our mathematical universe. Alongside the insight that physics brings, you will develop expertise in topics such as fluid dynamics and chaos theory.

Why study with us

  • Our Mathematics provision is in the UK’s top 10 for student satisfaction (Complete University Guide, 2021), and a low student-to-staff ratio, so you have plenty of opportunity to learn from our research-active staff.
  • You can specialise in the mathematics behind physics – something that employers are craving. Reduced experiments to enhance the mathematical physics content.
  • Physics and Astronomy is ranked 2nd in the North West for research intensity (CUG, 2022). Research intensity is a measure of the amount of staff involved in high-quality research in the university.
