So far I have chosen Cambridge which offer Maths with Physics in the first year, then I would most likely change to physics in the second year as the second year physics I believe would pick up mathematically. I have also chosen Manchester's Maths with Physics course. Now that can span the entire 4 years of a masters degree, however (something I still need to check) most likely would also try to change to Physics from the second year onward.

I have no idea on my final 3 choices, I considers the imperial but looking at the choices I don't see any sort of joint honors course. There is Maths with Applied Maths, but there are no practicals. There is also Physics with Theoretical Physics but to me that seems like a really poor course, as all it is really is saying that you can only take certain physics modules, so one might as well just chose to do physics then as long as they perform well enough mathematically they could do the Theo Phy modules too but are not restricted to them.

What am I looking for in the Uni? Well I want it to be really good with its Physics research; Astrophysics, Relativity and High energy are the main areas I am interested in. On the maths side if they have good research in Geometrical subjects and Differential Equations that would be great too.

Any advise would be great, I really have no idea for my final three. Thanks Guys :-).
