Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics
The course is preparation for mathematical research, as well as a valuable course in mathematics and in its applications for those who want further training before taking posts in industry, teaching, or research establishments. Students admitted from outside Cambridge to Part III study towards the Master of advanced study (MASt). Students continuing from the Cambridge tripos for a 4th year, study towards the Master of mathematics (MMath). There are normally about 80 courses, covering a range of pure mathematics, probability, statistics and the mathematics of operational research, applied mathematics and theoretical physics. Students have a wide choice of the combination of courses.
Minimum entry requirement is a 1st class Honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, physics, statistics or another subject with significant advanced mathematical content. Applicants whose 1st langauage is not English may be asked to provide evidence that they meet the required level.
Students may freely mix courses offered by the 2 departments; courses are worth either 2 or 3 credit units depending on whether they last for 16 or 24 lectures respectively.
