Mathematical Physics MPhys Heriot-Watt University



Course info



This Mathematical Physics degree will give you a solid understanding in both mathematics and physics. The course offers a wide range of mathematical and physics topics, and also gives you the option to transfer between Mathematics and Physics at an early stage. Our Mathematical Physics degree will also give you an extensive range of computer modelling skills.


This integrated masters in Mathematical Physics course is accredited by the Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of fully meeting the educational requirement for Chartered Physicist.

The aims of the MPhys (Hons) degree may be distinguished from the BSc (Hons) by: • a detailed knowledge and critical understanding at a more advanced level, including some specialisms, and a critical awareness of current issues in the subject • a significant project of research with demonstrated originality or creativity • an ability to critically analyse problems and issues at the forefront of the subject and make judgments where information is incomplete or inconsistent.

Teaching and Learning

We adopt a flexible and responsive approach to teaching and learning. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to adopt a deep approach to learning. They are encouraged to discuss with staff any problems at the earliest opportunity and student feedback is obtained for individual modules and through staff/student liaison meetings held each term.

A range of techniques is applied to the teaching and learning experience for the students, including lectures, experimental laboratories, literature searches and presentations.

Annual review of teaching and learning is made in the light of feedback received from students, examination results and external examiners' reports, etc.
