Students take modules in Mathematical Physics and Mathematics. At least 4 of the modules (at least 45 ECTS) must be taken at the Masters level (level 6 in Mathematical Physics and level 5 in Mathematics). The remaining credits may be made up at levels 4, 5 or 6.
The course provides a solid foundation in Theoretical Physics/Applied Mathematics/Pure Mathematics for students who wish to pursue careers in science, engineering, commerce and technology. Graduates gain employment in a wide range of occupations including research, teaching, actuary, banking, software development, computational physics and computer modelling/simulation. Students who perform well may go on to the PhD programme.

All module choices are subject to the approval of the Head of Department. Level 6 choices for Mathematical Physics are listed below. For other choices see the Mathematics Department modules at level 5 (see MSc in Mathematics MHR52) and Mathematical Physics Department modules at level 4. One of the Masters level modules may be replaced by a minor thesis subject to the approval of the Head of Department. Total credits 60.
Duration: 1 year Full-time, 2 years Part-time
