What will I learn?

Physics and mathematics are inextricably linked. It is not really possible to understand the basic concepts of physics such as elementary particle theory without a strong grounding in both pure and applied mathematics. This BSc combines the study of mathematics and physics on an equal basis, each reinforcing the other.

Degree benefits

  • Gain transferable skills such as numeracy, problem-solving and logical thinking, which can lead to a large variety of interesting, diverse and well-paid careers.

  • Internationally renowned (16th in Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject, 2021) UCL Mathematics is home to world-leading researchers in a wide range of fields, especially geometry, spectral theory, number theory, fluid dynamics and mathematical modelling.

  • Three of the six British winners of the Fields medal (the mathematician's equivalent of the Nobel Prize) have associations with the department.

  • UCL Physics & Astronomy and UCL Mathematics both rank in the top 20 in THE World University Rankings by Subject 2020.

Your learning

Teaching is mainly carried out through lectures and small-group tutorials. Problem classes allow you to exercise the skills you have learned. In addition, an 'office hours' system for each programme allows you to meet with tutors on a one-to-one basis to review parts of the degree that you find interesting or need clarifying. A Student Mentor scheme runs in the department offering support and advice to first-years.

Assessment

Most modules are assessed by two-hour written examinations in the third term, with a small element (10%) of coursework assessment.

Careers

We aim to develop your skills in mathematical reasoning, problem-solving and accurate mathematical manipulation. You will also learn to handle abstract concepts and to think critically, argue logically and express yourself clearly.

A mathematics degree is highly valued by employers due to the skills in logical thinking, analysis, problem-solving and, of course, numeracy, that it develops. Graduates have gone forward to use their mathematical skills in careers in the City of London, such as forecasting, risk analysis and trading; in financial services, such as accountancy, banking and insurance; and in scientific research, information technology and industry.
