If you have a passion for understanding the universe and a love of mathematics, our mathematics and physics courses could be perfect for you.

Taught jointly by the two departments, our BSc, MMath and MPhys give you a deeper understanding of mathematics and explore how it’s applied to solve physics problems. Whether you think of it as applied mathematics or theoretical physics, this joint programme gives you the best of both worlds.

Two unique aspects of these courses are:

  • Our award-winning Professional Training placements:
    • As part of our BSc, you can take a paid placement in a research laboratory or company, gaining valuable industry-relevant experience. On our MPhys or MMath, you can take a research placement in Year 4 in one of our world-leading research groups.
  • Our focus on undergraduate research and innovation:
    • You can apply for paid summer research placements with our research groups and those of our South East Physics Network partners. We offer in-house grants that students can apply for to fund a research placement, attend a conference, or develop a new business idea.

Five reasons to study mathematics at Surrey

What you will study

These courses explore core topics across both subjects, including linear algebra, quantum physics, differential equations and particle physics.

You’ll also get to choose from a range of fascinating optional modules – such as fluid dynamics, nuclear astrophysics, Galois theory and general relativity – and take an extended project, enabling you to tailor the course to suit your own interests.

Your final research project will be carried out under the supervision of an academic who’s a leading researcher in the field. The outcomes of the project could even lead to a publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

 Formal lectures are complemented with work in our specialist radiation laboratories, which have recently been refurbished and enlarged at a cost £2.7m. As an undergraduate student you’ll use these labs to undertake experiments related to the Nuclear and Particle Physics module. 

You can apply to study for either a BSc or an MMath or MPhys. The latter two are direct routes to a masters qualification. If you study toward one of the integrated masters, you’ll spend part of your last year doing a research project in either physics or mathematics.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Over the last decade, our employment figures have been among the best in the UK. In the Graduate Outcomes survey 2023), results show that 93 per cent of Surrey's undergraduate mathematics students and 96 per cent of Surrey's undergraduate physics students go on to employment or further study.

Our physicists and mathematicians are highly sought after in industry, research, education, management, medicine, law and business because of their wide-ranging skills, their knowledge of fundamental theory and their ability to solve complex problems.

Our courses provide you with the analytical, experimental and computational skills valued in a wide range of careers. You’ll also learn a range of skills during your studies that will help with your employability, including interview techniques, CV preparation and job applications. If you opt to take a Professional Training placement, you’ll gain invaluable employment experience.

Recent graduates are now employed in a range of organisations, including:

  • 3M
  • BBC
  • BT
  • Defence Research Agency
  • GEC Marconi Research
  • National Physical Laboratory
  • NHS
  • Nokia
  • Shell International Petroleum
  • Surrey Medical Imaging Systems.

Many graduates take masters courses in a range of subjects, such as geophysics, nanotechnology, meteorology, quantum field theory, education management and science communication. Others, particularly those with an MMath or MPhys, choose to pursue PhDs in nonlinear dynamics, fluids, data science, theoretical physics, nuclear science, astrophysics, semiconductors or photonics.

Academic year structure

The academic year is divided into two semesters of 15 weeks each. Each semester consists of a period of teaching, revision/directed learning and assessment.

Modules

Modules listed are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Modules are subject to teaching availability, student demand and/or class size caps.

The University operates a credit framework for all taught programmes based on a 15-credit tariff.

The structure of our programmes follow clear educational aims that are tailored to each programme. These are all outlined in the programme specifications which include further details such as the learning outcomes.


Optional modules for Foundation - FHEQ Level 3

For further information on FHEQ levels 4, 5 and 6 please view the programme specification for the full-time BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Physics programme.


Optional modules for Foundation (with PTY) - FHEQ Level 3

For further information on FHEQ levels 4, 5 and 6 and professional training year please view the programme specification for the full-time with PTY BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Physics programme.






Timetable

New students will receive their personalised timetable in Welcome Week. In later semesters, two weeks before the start of semester.

Scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week (Monday – Friday), with part-time classes normally scheduled on one or two days. Wednesday afternoons tend to be for sports and cultural activities.

Teaching

You’ll learn through a mixture of lectures, laboratory work, tutorials, online sessions, practical exercises and computational classes, and carry out assigned coursework, problem-solving and projects. Computers are used as teaching aids in the laboratory for experimental control and data analysis, in modelling of physical problems, and for effective communication.

You’ll be taught by research-led academics who specialise in both theoretical and mathematical physics. They lead research in many areas, including our understanding of the structure and dynamics of complex systems – from atomic nuclei, to galaxies and super-massive black holes. Research in mathematical physics includes ergodic theory, quantum field theory, general relativity, fluid dynamics and mathematical biology.

There may be occasions when the delivery of your teaching is supported by postgraduate research students. The University has a set of procedures about this.

Assessment

We use a variety of methods to assess you, including:

  • Coursework
  • Essays
  • Examinations
  • Practical sessions
  • Presentations
  • Reports.

Contact hours

Contact hours can vary across our modules. Full details of the contact hours for each module are available from the University of Surrey's module catalogue. See the modules section for more information.
