Bachelor of Science (Physics) - Bachelor of Mathematics

This double degree provides students with deeper understanding in the complementary areas of mathematics and physics. As well as making them eligible for employment in areas requiring qualifications in both mathematics and physics, this will particularly equip students for work in areas where they will undertake mathematical modelling of physical systems.
